Proper Snow arrives in Budleigh!

Monday 20th December


















A good 15-20cm of snow this morning and Budleigh came to a stand still! The main road into Budleigh was pretty treacherous and blocked by a fallen telegraph pole, so nothing for it but to go birding again!

Highlights included:

6+ Black-tailed Godwit
3 Bar-tailed Godwit
200+ Lapwing
6 Gadwall
6 Shoveler

1 Eider (on the sea)
Red-breasted Merganser - 1 drake
Goosander - 1 female
90+ Fieldfare
The best highlight though was a fly-over Snipe for the garden list taking the tally to 57 species.
