 A late afternoon trip down to the Clennon Valley Lakes to look for a Hume`s Leaf Warbler that was found a few days ago by local birder Mike Langman .

And it was not long before we picked the bird up  and it showed quite well but was constantly on the move in fading light , but it was nice to see this Asian migrant .

Not a Lot

 Not a lot to report today . On the fields by Darts Farm in Topsham this morning there was a large flock of Dark-Bellied Brent Goose and in with them was a few of the Pale-Bellied race hrota .

Then a look around the Ludwell Valley C P got me a White-Throated Dipper , a Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Grey Wagtail .

And a quick look at Bowling Green Marsh got me around a dozen Redwing and 4 Common Blackbird .
