Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 8th–14th January 2019

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:-

Berry Head, early afternoon

1 grey seal on the north side on the way down into the quarry, and around 12 each of porpoise and common dolphin in the tide race off the end. Numbers were diffiicult to estimate as both species were feeding in small scattered groups. Birds off the end included a few gannets, guillemots and fulmars (also back on nesting ledges) and 7 common scoters flew out of the bay.
