Devon, mid March 2023

An unplanned return to Devon to fix my son’s computer, allowed me a couple of slots of wet and windy birdwatching at Seaton Wetlands, Ham Wall, Lodmoor and Arne.

Nothing of note was seen on the Wetlands or Ham Wall (wet and very windy) but a very knowledgeable volunteer introduced me to the Aviemore (?) hide, which has great views of the reed beds.



Lodmoor had a distant Spoonbill, a few waders and LE's, plus noisy guls. Two male Mute Swan’s were in constant disagreement over a female.



 The Dunnock's at Lodmoor seem particularly tame.


  
Arne is a lovely walk, when the sun is shining, but the WTE’s were not visible over the harbour, and it was too early for any Osprey sightings. There were Siskin on the feeders plus an occasional Coal tit.  One of the local squirrel’s had also installed itself on the table feeders and was looking rather fat.
