Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 8th–14th October 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 dragonfly

I was helping manage the grassland on the south facing side of north fort when I was shown a dragonfly. It was a small hawker - smaller than any i am familiar with. It was most a pale brown  with a yellowish tinge and a striking blue patch at the top of the Abdomen. The best i can find on the internet is vagrant Emperor. Any ideas?

I settled briefly then flew inland towards the cafe. Sadly I had a strimmer not a camera so no record photos
