Escot Park, East Devon

15 members of East Devon Branch attended the parkland of Escot House for our traditional Christmas fieldtrip.With the consent of owner John Michael Kennaway we ventured into areas not usually open to the public.  A total of 34 species was found including Treecreeper, all the (common) thrushes, Bullfinch, Lesser Redpoll, Stock Dove, Sparrow Hawk, Kingfisher, Nuthatch, several Buzzards and Gt Spotted Woodpeckers. 

An excellent Christmas lunch was enjoyed by all and the toast (proposed by David Jannaway in his absence was) :  'Very best seasonal wishes and happy birding for all Devon birders in 2015'.
