Yalberton, Paignton and Venford

This morning at about 10:00 a distant raptor flew past my house just outside Paignton. It had long wings that were held slightly down in glide. The only plumage I could pick up on was a pale breast and darker wings and tail. I think the bird was probably a late Osprey.

A walk around Venford Reservoir and the woods below produced at least 4 Cuckoo, 5-6 Wood Warblers singing, 5 Pied Flycatchers(3 male, 2 female) and a singing Redstart.
