As I appear to be online ever increasingly, I thought it might be worth starting a South Devon birding thread.
My patch is a small rural neighbourhood inland in Devon.
To date I have recorded 75 species here, the pick of these being Cirl Bunting, Hobby, Firecrest, Kingfisher, Little Egret, and flyover Hen Harrier and Cormorant.
As far as I know, I am the only birder in the area. We are not talking about any local reserve or park, merely a typical part of the Devon countryside, my 'patch' being a small approx 2 mile square
As I also visit other parts of Devon when birding, this thread is not strictly dedicated to my patch, although that is where most of my birding is done, so please post if you've been out and about in Devon.
