Vennford Reservoir- Dart Valley Nature Reserve - Bench Tor etc.

An excellent day with 18 members (East Devon Branch) trying to avoid contact with similar sized group from RSPB!  

Total of 43 species listed and all target birds found ( Wood Warbler, Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Spotted Flycatcher, Cuckoo, Tree Pipit, Siskin, Redpoll, Yellow Hammer).  Also, a Hobby and family groups of 3+ Treecreepers and 3 Mistle Thrush.  Indications of many species breeding and a general feeling that bird numbers were up on last year with good numbers of target birds. Thanks to Jean Millen for leading us.
