Devon County Council are due to hear a planning application on 30th March in relation to land between Shiilingford St George and Kennford.

The application is for an 80 Acre landfill site to with soil being removed to allow for over 1 million tons of inert landfill, to be deposited.

The land is close to Shillingford Woods, which were recently purchased for the benefit of the local Community.

For those who would like to know more, visit the Devon County Council Website and go to the planning page then search for Application No. DCC/4268/2021.

You may then write comments, or object.

As an Organisation, Devon Birds has not taken a stance on this proposal at this stage.

Photographs needed

Posted March 16th at 10:31 am in Publications by Tony Utting

We are updating the Devon Birds website and are keen to have as many new images as possible to make the site as attractive as possible.

For all those photographers out there, we would like to use your images on the new site. Particularly those that show birds in their environment or the popular birding sites in Devon.

In addition, we would like banner images, that could be use on the title of the new pages.

So if you have any images that you think might be worth considering, please send them to me at

We can't promise to use all of them, but would like to see as many as possible.

`The only stipulation is that they must be your images and they must be of subjects in Devon.
