Lucky me !!

I heard news today that there was some Penduline Tits showing on Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham so I decided to go and look for them but on the way I decided to have a look at Darts Farm because it looks very good for them there also , and as I was walking towards the hide I saw some movement in the reed mace and on closer inspection I found an Adult and two Juvenile Penduline Tit`s , I fired off a few shots and put the news out on them but the birds were only on show for 25 minutes and then flew off high towards the Exe Estuary .
Also seen today was the Black Brant that was in with a large flock of Dark Bellied Brent Geese and 3 Pale Bellied Brent Geese , 2 Common Chiffchaff , a Siberian Chiffchaff , 2 Common Stonechat and a Common Kingfisher , so not a bad days birding !!


  1. Yes Lucky You!! :-) Great set of photos too!

  2. Great photos Dave, it was good you didn't come straight to BGM you would have missed them in both places. Saw them at 10:20 at BGM then disappeared for the rest of my stay.
