Garden Warbler

Today comprised of two fairly short visits to the patch followed by successful twitches for the White-winged Black Tern and Baird's Sandpiper elsewhere in Devon. I began up on Bundle Head shortly after 6am where perseverance working the hedgerows was rewarded with a Garden Warbler, a long overdue patch tick for me. Also present between here and The Ness were 14+ Blackcaps, 9+ Chiffchaffs, 6+ Willow Warblers and a Green Woodpecker. Later on in the morning I called in at Flow Point where 14 Dunlin and 12 Ringed Plovers represented a modest but welcome increase in small wader numbers, 50+ Sandwich Terns were roosting and a Wheatear was on the saltmarsh.
