Dartmoor - Hexworthy and surrounding area

A cold crisp sunny walk across the moor and along the West Dart this afternoon produced 2 Goosander 30+ Golden Plover, 15+ Snipe, plenty of Redwing, Fieldfare and Mistle Thrush feeding on the Hawthorn bushes and 3 pairs of Stonechat seen across this area. A couple of Buzzards, and a single Kestrel to mention. Plenty of Chaffinch feeding under the Beech Trees but no Brambling with them. Not much else to report in the area.
