Venford Reservoir, Dartmoor

16 members of the of  DBWPS enjoyed a memorable walk above the Dart with good views of Wood Warblers, Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts.  A Cuckoo was present for much of the day on the higher land of Holne Moor causing a nuisance to Meadow Pipits.  A Green Woodpecker was present earlier in the morning, plus Siskin and Spotted Flycatcher but those who stayed until later in the afternoon were rewarded with a pair of Winchat. Thanks to Jean Millen for leading us.
