Pipits, Egrets & Starlings

I had some frustrating views of at least one Water Pipit a few days ago and suspected there were more, but the light was disappearing quickly. Despite looking over the last few days I have failed to re-find them until yesterday, when I counted 12 birds and then 13 birds today. Pretty much the same time last year I had at least 12 birds in the same fields - I wonder where they spent the Summer?

Cattle Egret 24th Nov. thanks to Dave White.
Funny how regular this species has become in Devon.

The roosting Starling flock has reached an absolute minimum of 1,500 birds
during the last couple of weeks.
