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.
