Field Trip - Yarner Wood

The East Devon Branch of Devon Birds 7th Field Trip for the year, saw a fresh faced, eager crowd muster together in the woodland glades of Yarner Wood and surrounding heathland on the 5th May.

With the warm glorious sunshine we soon shed a couple of layers of winter plumage and started to enjoy the songs of the many Pied Flycatchers, a pair of Redstarts, Willow Warblers and Blackcaps. Meanwhile, in the distance we could hear a Cuckoo calling and up on the heathland a Tree Pipit was holding territory. Everywhere we walked we were accompanied by dancing Brimstone butterflies.
