This morning I went to an area near the village of Ide in Devon and I saw 4 Red-Legged Partridge , 6 Common Skylark , 1 Woodlark + another one heard on call , a Common Buzzard and 2 Common Raven but by now the rain had started to fall so I headed for home ,
Later in the day I was sat at home when this female Eurasian Sparrowhawk visited my feeders and stayed for about 5 minutes but then flew off without catching anything !

Humpback Whale in Devon !!!

Andy Bond and myself went down to Slapton Ley in South Devon this morning , and we saw the astounding sight of a Humpback Whale feeding in Start Bay , we were told that it was a bit further out than yesterday but we still got nice views of it breaching and at least three blows , we also saw around half a dozen Common Dolphin , we then had a look at Slapton Ley and saw a 1st winter Little Gull a nice bird for the year .
