Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 1st–7th January 2018

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:-

Saunton Sands - under attack from the sea

The surf at Saunton Sands this morning during one of the recent high spring tides was approx.8  to 10 feet & clean. One of the few surfers brave enough to take the plunge had his board broken in half by a large wave at high tide.

Braunton Burrows also lost approx 10 metres of foredunes! Such is the power of the ocean. A combination of rising sea levels caused by global warming is already having an impact in N.Devon.

This begs the question, how long before Braunton Burrows becomes a beach & surf zone?
