Ringing in the reserve (the perfect place to self-isolate!) Produced of note: 1 Reed Bunting, 9 Chiffchaff, 2 Goldcrest, and a Willow Warbler - very long wing making it a male, which usually arrive first. Sadly it didn't sing. Only 3 or 4 Sand Martins over early on.

6 or 7 Peacock, 2 or 3 Small Tortoiseshell (one very scruffy) and a cracking Comma.

Exeter Quay - Countesswear

Walked a loop down the river and up the canal early this morning.

Lots of song in the sunshine from the common passerines, with minor contributions from Dipper, Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Grey Wagtail, Reed Bunting, Cetti's Warbler and Blackcap, I believe an over-wintering bird. The local Ravens were very vocal around sunrise; I assume that they, like the rest, have to tell their neighbours that they have survived the night. The Rooks at Matford, 80+ nests, added their few decibels. Approx. ten Sand Martins were feeding over the Countesswear ponds.

Non-passerine "song" came from all four Pigeon/Dove spp., Water Rail, Little Grebe and both Woodpeckers. 

Two each of Redshank and Green Sandpiper were feeding, silently, in the flood channels, and a handful of Wigeon, Teal and Shoveler remain at Matford.

Around 60 spp. in total by 09.30.

After a few hours in the reserve pruning trees and being entertained by at least a dozen Chiffchaffs one of which was singing, I returned to the scrape early evening and reckon up to 100 Sand Martins but no Swallows among  them. Distant view of a female Marsh Harrier over Sherpa Marsh

Exe & Dartmoor

On the way up to the Exe estuary checked the sea off of Labrador Bay very choppy and discoloured no sign of any of the recently reported Scoter's, but two male Cirl Bunting in the hedgerow around the car park.

Cockwood a count of 31 Cattle Egret, Sparrow hawk passed over them pursued by three Carrion Crow and most of the Egrets moved off over the hill.

Two Red Legged Partridge in the field alongside the golf course (which looks as if it’s been sold off for housing development despite being an important winter bird habitat)

The Slavonian Grebe spotted feeding up towards Powderham.

Three Egyptian Geese, one up a tree at the Powderham heronry, 25 Curlew and 12 Shell duck and six plus Heron around the heronry.

Exminster Marshes arrived just in time to watch the passage of up to 100 Sand Martin passing over the marsh feeding and drinking, 21 Mute Swan, 12 plus Little Egret, two Heron, plenty of Shell duck, small number of Curlew, two Cetti’s Warbler, two Chiffchaff, several Skylark, Water Rail calling almost constantly and a pair of Reed Bunting displaying and chasing.

Walked the Glazebrook onto Dartmoor from Owley this afternoon, very different from yesterday morning's walk, for an isolated spot surprising how many people were self-isolating up there, but twenty species recorded, in addition to yesterday’s post three Fieldfare, two LBBG, fourteen Stonechat, none seen yesterday.

A count of 48 Meadow Pipits, nine Skylark, six Buzzard, three Stock Dove, twenty two Carrion Crow and two Raven.

Sand Martins over the scrape again this morning, plus an influx of Chiffs: at least 7 seen in the reserve, one of which despite the cold wind, did actually sing. Not too much else of note, but reminds me I saw flock of 15 Black-tailed Godwits over the adjacent Sherpa Marsh yesterday.

Plym Estuary & Saltram

An early visit to keep my social distance therefore the tide was out. 8 Cattle Egrets flew up the Estuary towards Saltram house. They were followed shortly after be a male Peregrine who came in low over the mud and continued over Sainsbury’s. Not much on the Estuary to catch his attention. The only other birds of note were Kingfisher, 10 Redwing, 3 Common Sandpiper & 2 Siskins.

Quiet in the reserve still only a single Chiffchaff. Singing Green and Chaffinch livened things up a bit, as did the Sand Martins out over the scrape.

Back home while digging in my garden Green Woodpecker calling, GSW drumming and the delightful melody of my first singing Blackbird this year. Gave me the inspiration to get on with the job!

Powderham Marsh today; Ide - Perridge yesterday

Today, a two-hour scan in the company of others produced many Sand Martins, and singles of Green-Winged Teal, Scaup, Green Sandpiper, Peregrine, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk with several Reed Buntings on the bird table, and a pair of Stonechats on the walk from the Swan's Nest..

Yesterday, the lane from Ide to Longdown started with a Dipper on the Alphinbrook, and finished, North of the trig. point, with flocks of Redwing (20+, perhaps the last of the Winter), Linnet (25+), Siskin (10+), Crossbill (5+), (with two additional isolated singing males), and Stock Dove (35+). Have not seen a flock of the latter locally before; are they, like Wood Pigeon, a partial migrant, so were these returning from further S. or W.? Along the way, lots of song, especially from Yellowhammer, Mistle Thrush, and, above all, Larks, mostly exultant, but some mournful.

Popped out yesterday afternoon, first to Fremington Pill though very few birds around. Got a quick shot of an Egret in flight. I then went down to Wrafton pond.  There was very little there to report just a few Coots, Moorhens, Snipe, Mallard (M&F), a couple of Little grebes and two male Pochard.  A singing Chiffchaff made the trip worthwhile.

Broadsands, Paignton

9 members of DB attended the East Devon Branch fieldtrip this morning.  8 Cirl Buntings (3 males) were present in the second car park with a Chiffchaff in the hedgerow.  The main challenge came from the search for 2 Firecrest reported and which were eventually found in ivy covered trees opposite Sycamore Close together with a Goldcrest, 3 Bullfinch and a singing Blackcap. Overhead were 2 Buzzard and a Raven. Out in the bay 2 Great Northern Diver were present with a Common Scoter near the mussel beds.  A grey seal was close in to the shore.

PLEASE NOTE. In view of the 'virus crisis' members will be asked to keep 2 meters distance from each other, not to share scopes and drivers will decide whether they wish to car share or not.  We will continue with our Branch Fieldtrip Programme until the crisis determines otherwise and members will be informed of any future changes as they occur.  Thank you.
