Dartmeet and River dart

 An impromptu visit to Dartmeet late this morning initially looked as if it was going to be a run of the mill outing with nothing of real interest to either see or report.

After some time a single male Bullfinch came in feeding on dried Blackberry heads, followed by three male Yellow Hammers, Marsh and CoalMandarin Ducks Rv Dart ~ 13/01/2015 Tits showing well, a pair of Greater spotted Woodpeckers, a single Jay, up to four Robins round the feeders made for some interesting scuffles and a possible male Black Redstart reported by another birder but not seen by me.

On the way home good numbers of Fieldfare, Redwing and Rooks in the Buckfastleigh area.

On the River Dart a count of no less than 60 plus Mandarin duck mixed in with a good number of Mallard
