A good day of birding over the border in Devon...28th April 2016

Dartford Warbler

Spent the day in East Devon today with visits to Aylesbeare Common, Woodbury Common & Stover Lake.

Found some Dartford warblers that weren't on territory and managed to grab a couple of shots.

At Stover there were 3 Common Sandpipers right in front of the hide and spent a lot of time with them.

Also Great crested Grebes, Mandarin Duck, Coots with young and GS Woodpecker.
