Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 22nd–30th April 2020

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:-

Marsh Green, East Devon

An hours walk from home around the country lanes produced a pair of Roe Deer and a few birds including a single Whitethroat, several Blackcap and a few others.  Most worrying is the absence of Swallows with none seen here yet it spite of the many farms locally.  Only five House Martin counted to date.
