Slapton Ley

Highlights were the male Scaup still in the Tufted Duck flock out from the Tank car park at Torcross and a female type Marsh Harrier seen dropping into the reeds in Ireland Bay around midday. Elsewhere Black Swan spoiling the view, Little Egret in the Cormorant roost ( only a casual visitor here ), 5 Mediterranean Gulls, 2 Common Terns and 2 Wheatears. Anyone else notice a lack of Starlings at the moment ?
