North Haldon

Walked a loop Ide - Perridge - Dunchideock - Ide this morning, serenaded much of the way by the songs of larks, a Cirl Bunting (continuing their Northward expansion) and Yellowhammer. In the farmland were flocks of Linnet (two of 75+ each), Starling (250+), Chaffinch (50+), mixed corvids (700+, never seen so many Carrions together before away from the estuary, but, unusually, no Ravens), and small groups of Redwing and Fieldfare. In and over the woods were Marsh Tit, Treecreeper, Siskin, Crossbill and two Sparrowhawks. Ended with a Dipper on the stream that runs through Ide.
