Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 22nd–31st May 2017

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:-

Always good to see a Green Hairstreak, this one sheltering from a fresh SE. 28.2C in the sun at 15.00 in our garden! By 18.00 it will probably be over 30C.

Wood Mouse

A different visitor to the bird feeder this morning.  Photographed through the study window at Budleigh Salterton, EX9.  It has been seen before,  see photo of earlier date: but climbing onto the feeder is a new trick.
