A Nice Day On Dartmoor

Brian Heasman and myself went out to Dartmoor this morning and when driving across the moor we saw numerous Common Skylark , a few Northern Wheatear , 2 very nice male Whinchat & 2 Common Cuckoo, we then arrived at Challacombe Farm and after a while looking we came across a nice male Common Redstart that showed very well for a short while before disappearing again .
We then decided to have a look at Yarner Wood and on the way in we saw 3 male and a female Mandarin Duck , we then soon came across a Wood Warbler that showed very well & my first Holly Blue Butterfly of the year , then a look up on the heath got us 3 Tree Pipit and a Garden Warbler .
