Grand Western Canal

A walk between Tiverton and Burlescombe produced a few decent birds including eleven Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs, three Reed Buntings, a Green Woodpecker, Swallows, House Martins, Swifts, seven Sedge Warblers, a Whitethroat, eight Reed Warblers and one Raven.

Lots of wildlife out at the moment and the odonata highlights were a single Red-eyed Damselfly, a Hairy Dragonfly, a Beautiful Demoiselle and a female Scarce Chaser.

Surprised at no mention of the finch here.
