Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 15th–21st August 2016

Scarce Breeding Birds - important posting guidelines

Please do not post any information about scarce or rare breeding species. They may be vulnerable to persecution or disturbance. 

The exception is information on these species at well known sites (e.g. Broadsands for Cirl Bunting and Aylesbeare for Dartford Warbler) or birds which are obvious migrants away from breeding sites.

If in any doubut, please don't post but report your sighting to the county recorder asap. Site editors cannot commit to editing posts which breach these guidelines, and the whole post may be removed or not admitted.

Further details can be found in the link below, but note, Wood Warbler is now also included as a scarce breeder:-

Dragonfly

Whilst on a walk at Bicton Park saw this dragonfly land and stay still.  (there were many about but on the move) Pity it was on a green background but is it an Emperor or a Southern Hawker?  Any experts out there? 

 

Eds: It is indeed Southern Hawker
