Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 8th–14th November 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:-

Otter at BGM

After a poor morning's birding at Dartington (no stubble on fields by the school) and Staverton Water works (not one bird seen in 40 minutes!) we moved to BGM where we were rewarded with some stunning waterfowl including beautiful Pintails, handsome Shoveler, pretty Teal and whistling Wigeon. Also Snipe showing well and a few Black Tailed Godwit. A real treat, though, was n Otter that was hunting in the stretch of water adjacent to the reeds behind the 'island'. We saw it surfacing, diving and eventually coming to the surface with a fish which it then consumed in open water affording great, prolonged views.
