Ideford Common

13.00.  My three year old son and I inadvertently flushed 6 Snipe from a very wet and boggy area of heather and gorse.  Very quiet otherwise (apart from off road motorbikes!) in strong but welcome sunshine.  3 Ravens and a Meadow Pipit over the Common itself.  Feeders around main car park busy with Siskins, Redpoll calling, large mixed Tit flock, Nuthatch and GS Woodpecker.
