Around the Axe

Nice bit of a variety around this morning, with single male Whinchat and Redstart on Beer Head, a reeling Grasshopper Warbler in Seaton by the old Racal site, and a Lesser Whitethroat singing at Bridge Marsh. Earlier KH had the Short-eared Owl hunting over Black Hole Marsh (present for its 4th day). 

Yesterday singles of Whinchat and Ring Ouzel briefly in Axmouth between Stepp's Lane and the Golf course.

Off patch Dad had a grounded male Yellow Wag and a male Black Redstart at Berry Head yesterday morning.
