Devon's Winter Birdlife

Flocks of waders including Avocets enjoy the food rich marshes and at points along the coast we have the chance of catching up with Cirl Buntings, which breed in this part of the country alone.

Devon's Birdlife - Migrants on the Move!

As well as some of the wonderful resident birdlife in the area, we will be hoping to catch up with a few of the birds that pass through the South West on their Autumn migration. These could be American vagrants blown adrift by westerly winds, as well as European and Eastern species.

Regular autumnal visitors could include warblers like Yellow-browed and waders such as Curlew Sandpiper. Who knows what might turn up.
