Even when I spend almost two hours walking around Beer Head in late April and see nothing better than four Wheatear, three Whitethroat and a Willow Warbler, I simply cannot justify a moan...
|Absolutely stunning views, this is looking west|
Looking east, as usual Portland was viewable, but looking west you could see all the way down to Start Point which is a whopping 40 miles away! Well, you could just about see it...
|If you squint you can make out the white lighthouse at Start Point, just to the right of that boat|
|I'm pretty sure this is Brixham with Berry Head to the left|
|Hope's Nose and the Ore Stone|
|Dawlish, Langstone Rock and Sandy Point|
We really do live in a beautiful part of the world!
And although the migrant birds I saw weren't exactly special, if you think about the journey they have just undertaken then really they are ALL special. Three of the Wheatears I actually saw arrive, and I can't put it into words how amazing it is to see them make landfall into the UK for the first time this spring. Simply amazing...
