Dart Bridge & Newton Abbot

A run around various spots in the Dart Bridge and Newton Abbot areas this morning.

22 plus Mandarin duck on the Rv Dart at Buckfastleigh, along with two Dippers, a male Goosander and 11 plus Long Tailed Tits.


Jetty Marsh Lane, Newton Abbot, several pairs of Mallard, Heron, Little Egret, Song Thrush, Goldcrest, Long Tailed Tit, Sparrow hawk.

At the Passage House Inn I saw a female Sparrow hawk come so close to taking a landing Common Sandpiper  I still can't understand how the intended victim managed to survive, several Redshank went off in a panic, Song Thrush and Little Egret in the area.

At home in South Brent very smart Nuthatch visiting and two male GSWP.
