Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 15th–21st July 2020

Corona Virus lockdown

We are back in Lockdown, all sightings posts from observers should only be in their very local area (town, village or part of city). Any posts where the observer is obviously travelling distances to other sites will be deleted, Devon Birds will not edit these posts.

Closure of Dawlish Warren dune path

We have been informed that due to storm damage and erosion the dune path that provides access to the bird hide has been closed as it is unsafe. Access from Groyne 10 to Groyne 15 will only be via the beach and is subject to tides.

Comet NEOWISE

this impressive bright comet is now more conveniently visbile in the evening sky after dark (looking good 11-12pm). Low in the NW and if you can view it from a dark site it really helps. Finder chart at:
