N Devon reserves

Spent a short time in Bradiford reserve this morning and after the work, looked around - Buzzard as Maurice mentioned, and about 45 Teal off the river, with 25+ Snipe also.

In Velator this afternoon, very quiet indeed so I looked in the Tawny Owl box again, and found yet another squirrel dray. As I evicted it TWO Squirrels burst out. hmmmm haven't seen any for quite some time so disappointed to find two in residence. I heard two Tawny Owls in the reserve before dawn as I opened the nets for a ringing session last Saturday, so disappointed they haven't a) moved in and b) dealt with the squirrels.
