I had another great day out with the DBWPS today, starting at Fingle Bridge on Dartmoor at 1000. I didn't think I'd been there before until we arrived & I recognised it as somewhere we've been walking with the dogs before.
There were about 18 of us & we'd struck lucky with the weather. It was gorgeous. We started off lurking around the bridge which paid off with 2 Grey Wagtails & a Dipper. The Dipper's nest under the bridge was quite impressive.

By the time we got back to the cars I had 27 species on my list, although it would have been 28 if I hadn't missed the Mistle Thrush. Not a great list & nothing new, but it had been a very enjoyable day as usual.
