Brilliant Birds

Leave a comment

wheatear st abbsWhat a brilliant month it’s been for scarce birds. Arctic skua and grey phalarope off Shell Bay; two great white egrets at Little Sea; firecrest and yellow-browed warbler at South Beach; ring ouzel and wheatear on Ballard Down; marsh harrier and osprey at Middlebere; hen harrier and merlin at Hartland. As we go into November, many of these species will still be present so head out with your binoculars and get birding.
