Some Big News!

Well, the major talking point today is the preliminary results of the DNA sequencing of the grey and white Yellow Wagtail present at Colyton WTW last December. I've posted the full details on the Devon Bird News blog for all to read: http://devonbirdnews.blogspot.com/2011/03/colyford-yellow-wagtail-uk-first.html

This post is going to have to be a quickie, as I'm of to work shortly. I spent a bit of time out and about today, new birds seen include eight Sand Martins at Lower Bruckland Ponds and a Bar-tailed Godwit on the Estuary...

'Hangers on' include the Bewick's Swan and Greylag Goose opposite Stecombe, and four Velvet Scoters still off Seaton Hole.
