Torquay (Coastal Residential)

A morning visit to the friend who lives just off of Ilsham Marine Drive in Torquay this morning, he showed me some images taken on the 5th May 2015 showing four Wheatears in his garden, two males two females.

Song Thrush in the garden gathering worms.

Peregrine calling overhead

Almost continuous visits from a small Warbler species gathering nesting material which from the images I took I suspect is a Willow Warbler.

A nest box fitted with livecam showed a growing clutch of Blue Tit chicks which looked as if they are just about ready to leave the nest.

A pair of Blackcaps had been showing in the garden all through the winter until recently.

And for the duration of most of the visit a Vixen sunning herself on the back patio and garden area.
