Otterton - Monks Wall

A surprising sighting of a SWALLOW, first seen hawking over fields of stubble and then perching on overhead wires amongst Starlings and preened for several minutes. Large flocks of Starlings, circa 2,000+ feeding in the pig and stubble fields as well as perching on the overhead wires. BLACK REDSTART at Monks Wall House catching insects on the thatched roof.
3 Stock Doves, 2 Yellowhammers and a pair of Stonechats completed a very pleasant morning.
