Great Gulls, South Devon (08/06/2014)
I then moved to Yarner Wood where I was told to park elsewhere but given instructions on finding Dipper. I moved to the location and found a singing Wood Warbler and eventually had views of a male Pied Flycatcher at a nest box.
I moved to the river Bovey where eventually I pinned down a Dipper feeding on a area of fast flowing water.
I then drove back to Topsham where I picked up a Mediterranean Gull and then moved to the hide where I waited. Picked up a couple of Common Gulls and Mediterranean Gulls and then on cue the 1st summer/winter Ross's Gull and 1st summer Bonaparte's Gull showed nicely in amongst the other gulls.
I then drove home via Martin Down but had no luck with any Quail or Turtle Dove, just a couple of Corn Buntings and a Hare.
