07:40-16:30. Some cloud first thing but eventually a beautiful sunny day. Moderate-fresh NE wind easing through day.

Merlin, 3 Golden Plovers, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Grey Wagtail, 14 Wheatears, 14 Ring Ouzels, 21 Blackcaps, 66 Chiffchaffs, 7 Yellow-browed Warblers ( 2 Hgr Soar, 1 Hamstone Cottage, 2 East Soar Willows and 2 more seen by Alan Doidge in the plantation ) and 9 Goldcrests.

A few Red Admirals and 2 Clouded Yellows. Not sure if 7 YBW's is a mainland record for Devon ? Doubt it would last long if it was !
