Rackerhays and Kingskerwell

At Rackerhays, Newton Abbot this afternoon, an impressive 13 Mandarin, 10(6m,4f) on Island Pond and 3(2m,1f) on Dawes Pond. This may be the first record of Mandarin at Rackerhays and presumably have been displaced from the nearby fast flowing rivers. Also 2 Goldeneye, c15 Siskin and 3 Goldcrest.

At dusk this evening, a Woodcock flew over a regular fly-route at Stoneycombe at the back of Kingskerswell.
