Dawlish Warren

Continued erosion at Dawlish Warren means visitors are reminded to take extra care when visiting. Access along the site, to and from the bird hide and Warren Point, is via the beach only, with a risk of being cut off for a period either side of high water! Further information is available on the Teignbridge District Council website:

Black-headed Wagtail

I'm sure there will be better pictures but none on here yet, so attached is my effort of the putative Black-headed Wagtail at Dawlish today.

NINE Red Kite!

Absolutely no breeding behaviour at all, so quite content to share this experience. 

House/pet sitting at Aveton Gifford, near Kingsbridge. At 16:00 today, whilst walking the dogs, NINE Red Kite were thermalling overhead! Rushed images taken before they drifted North towards Dartmoor. Having seen Jon Turner's post....16:00 to 17:15? Could it be one of the nine that Jon saw? Anyway; here's a few of the images I was able to grab (heavily cropped)
