Thursday 17th November

Winter birding has descended on the Warren with few new arrivals. Counts from the estuary including 1210 Wigeon, 164 Brent Geese, 130 Teal, 85 Redshank, 44 Grey Plover, 34 Turnstone, 25 Bar and two Black-tailed Godwit, 22 Sanderling and a Greenshank. Elsewhere six Chiffchaff were in the bushes and 75 Common Scoter, two Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver were offshore.

Wildlife News: The Girdled Knight Tricholoma cingulatum was a recent discovery on sallows by the Main Pond. This is a new species for the recording area and there is only one Devon record on the NBN, a good example of how much there is still to discover on site.
