Occombe, Paignton

Continuing with my last posting, again plenty of Wren activity with at least 13 recorded this morning. Again good numbers of Blackbirds, 5 Blackcaps (inc a female), 4 Robins (inc 2 fledglings and all 4 seen separately), 4 Goldfinch, Pied Wagtail, at least 2 Long-tailed Tits, 3 Pheasant (1 female who I'm sure was protecting a nest), 3 male Mallards, Nuthatch, Greenfinch, 3 Chiffchaff, Swallow, Song Thrush, 3 House Martins, House Sparrow, Kestrel and a Buzzard. When I visited midweek in the late afternoon I heard the call of a Buzzard chick but not today. Interestingly, today was the 1st time since Father's Day 5 years ago that I've seen Skylark at Occombe.
