Another day on dartmoor

May 19, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I decided to return to Dartmoor today to see if the Whinchat numbers had increased. Lots of Cuckoos calling from all over the moor but only managed to spot one as it flew overhead. Five pairs of Whinchats were found, all defending territories and chasing of anything that encroached on their own areas.

A single Tree pipit was singing loudly and flitting from tree to tree in its quest for a mate. I managed to position myself close to one of the smaller trees it had been using and managed to get some shots (another first for me)
