Dartmoor: Soussons - Headland Warren- Challacombe

Highlight of the day was the Great Grey Shrike intelligently out of the keen north wind on clearfell in the north-east corner of Soussons Forest. In and around the forest 52 Chaffinch, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Sparrowhawk and planty of Goldcrests. Out on the moor great views of a ringtail Hen Harrier unsuccessfully chasing a male Bullfinch, two pairs of Stonechat and a singing Nuthatch at Challacombe Farm and a sheep's carcass attracting 4 Raven, 24 Crows and 5 Magpies at Soussons Farm!
