Ivybridge, Henlake Down/Longtimber Woods

Extensive scrub clearance and recent gorse/grass fire.

2 Tree Pipit, 5 Stonechat, several Willow Warbler, Pheasant and Blue/Coal/Great Tits, Nuthatch, Great Spotted Woodpecker & Robins & Wren.  2 Swallow, 1 Kestrel and 1 Buzzard overhead. Also Linnets, Chiffchaff and Yellowhammer. Far fewer Dunnock and Chaffinch than previous years, presumably due to burning.
