Soar

2nd winter farmland bird count this morning - 131 Cirl Bunting, site record, Devon record & UK record count. Proves the point that Cirls don't move far whereas only 31 Yellowhammer located - these birds will move around much more before returning in mid-winter! Also: 465 Skylark, Snipe, Golden Plover, 30 Meadow Pipit, 11 Fieldfare, 80 Goldfinch, 49 Stock Dove (24W 20E 5 grounded), 480 Woodpigeon          (410E 70W), 11 Fieldfare & Starling 8E.
