This blog follows my travels and bird/wildlife trips, in words (few) and photos (many probably)!

Trip to Devon today to try and pick up on a few odds and ends which were about. Started off at Dunster to look for Lesser Spotted Woodpecker again, nothing this time. We did have a pair of Dipper collecting nesting material. A Grey Wagtail, at least 6 Treecreepers and some Marsh Tits were the best we could do.
Next stop was Little Haldon, where there had been a Hoopoe for a few days. No sign of that either. But we did manage at least 5 Crossbills and a few Yellowhammers.
Then Broadsands for Cirl Buntings, there were at least 6 or 8 there. Also a Willow Warbler there.

A Purple Heron at Budleigh Salterton was our next target, no sign of that either. then onto a very quiet Bowling Green Marshes RSPB. A good day, but could have been so much better.
