Tawny Pipit and YBW

This morning I walked the west cliffs again, nothing new but there seemed to more Chiffchaffs around and nice to see the Yellow-browed Warbler was still present (now its 4th day). 

This afternoon, I had a call from Matt to say he had just found a Tawny Pipit off Gore Lane, Exmouth so I headed over and the bird was on show immediately. A Devon tick for me - Good to see Matt, Brian, Terry and Spencer. A nice relaxed twitch!

Total respect to Matt, he always pulls it out of the bag and certainly inspires me to keep going! After seeing the bird, I felt I had to give a quick check of the Top Fields my end. Nothing new, but lots of Meadow Pipits, Skylarks building in number, Linnet and a single Wheatear. Top work Matt and thanks! You can read his account of finding the bird HERE
