Wise Birding Holidays
Monday, 8 December 2014
Had another look for the Lapland Bunting today in a different area and had a shock in finding a different bunting - Corn Bunting! The bird was very tricky to see and I only found it due to it calling but very difficult in the wind and with the noisy Skylarks. Seems to be the first record in Devon since 2010? I have always hoped to find one near Budleigh as they have bred historically. Hopefully we can encourage it to stick around as I am hoping to see the farmer tomorrow......
