Devon Bird Sightings: Other Wildlife from 1st–7th October 2021

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:-

Unusual seal behaviour

Walked down to the Turf locks this afternoon at low tide. A seal was in the channel and several times moved into the shallow water on the edge of the channel till half out of the water then surged forward with a lot of splashing.. I assume trying to flush flatfish. He caught a large flounder type.
