21st April
First visit to Davidstow for a while, a few bits and pieces around, a small flock of twelve Ringed Plover, three Skylark, a pair of Stock Dove and lots of Wheatears, all just arrived I imagine, one or two came very close to my parked car allowing for some nice photos.

Walmsley again again

Sat 9th April
Nice to see some spring migrants with lots of Sand Martins and quite a few Swallows, plus Willow Warblers and Chiffchaff. Not really a lot else , a flock of Black Tailed Godwits with a couple in summer plumage were joined by a few Redshank, one Grey Plover and a Ruff, a few photos taken on the day.
