Common Whitethroats

Me and the Mrs carried out our section of the National Seabirds Census: Seabirds Count this morning from Ladram Bay to Otter Ledge and it was great to be walking alongside so much wildlife friendly farmland. Impressive grass margins, loads of flowers and insects, thick hedges, low intensity arable fields and all to the sound of numerous Common Whitethroats and Cirl Buntings! 
We counted mostly Herring Gulls, Great Black-backed Gull, Fulmar and a few Shag and Cormorant nests. Also of note were 10 Common Scoters on the sea.
