Dark-Eyed Junco

I took another look at the Exminster Marshes this morning but there was not a lot to be seen today with only 3 Little Egret , 2 Cattle Egret , 2 Common Swift , 4 Barn Swallow , 10 Common Sand Martin , 5 Common House Martin , 2 Common Raven and a Reed Bunting .
Later in the day news broke of a Dark-Eyed Junco in North Devon at Westward Ho so I made the trip up in hope that it would still be on show . The bird was showing in the back garden of a house and the owners were very kindly opening their house so that birders could see the bird from their lounge .
It took a wait of around an hour for the bird of the "Slate-Coloured Race" to turn up again and when it did it showed well for about 5 minutes and then vanished back into the garden again.......Once again many thanks to the owners and to Devon Birds .
