Penduline Tit

Another day out year listing got me a few nice birds today with 9 Red-Breasted Merganser and around 60+ Pied Avocet seen on the Exe Estuary , the next stop was over at Darts Farm in Topsham where it was good to catch up with many birders and wish them Happy New Year ! to start with there was not a lot of birds on show with only a male and female Common Stonechat and 3 Common Chiffchaff but as we were all stood there talking to each other 3 superb Penduline Tit`s dropped into the reed bed and were on show for quite a while.....What a great bird to get on the list for the New Year !
Off then to Aylesbeare Common to look for the Great Grey Shrike that now seems to be wintering there and we were lucky enough to get great views of the bird , also seen were 2 Mistle Thrush .
