R.Taw - Pottington to Heanton Court.

09:30 - 11.00

Just back from 2 weeks in Spain. Followed Devon Bird News while there and was a bit dissapointed in the lack of postings from N.Devon? There were plenty of Sand Martins, Swallows and Chiff Chaffs on their way north during February.

A slow bike ride today along the Tarka Trail produced 223 Dark_bellied Brent and 1 Black Brant still off Penhill Marsh.
2 Goldcrests and 2 Bullfinch in bushes  alongside the Tarka Trail.
3 Redhead Goosanders; 4 Turnstone; c 35 Sanderling and  c30 Wigeon at Ashford Strand.
