Plym Estuary & Saltram and Dartmoor

An early morning visit to the Plym Estuary and Saltram produced the first Chiffchaffs of the spring (2 singing), Jack snipe, 2 Snipes, 2 Little Grebes and 15+ Skylarks. Tide was not suitable to get accurate wader counts.

In the afternoon, prolonged views of the Great Grey Shrike at Soussons Down; also 6 Siskins, a Green Woodpecker and a Lesser Redpoll. 

A bit better than the complete blank drawn at Soar and South Huish yesterday!
