Should anyone find a trapped/injured Kittiwake this season, please contact the RSPCA’s 24-hour cruelty & advice helpline on 0300 1234 999. To help officers locate birds in trouble explaining where they can be viewed from is very useful. Visit our diary page for progress updates

Good shot! I have always found them remarkably skulking for such a big bird.

I thought the same for a moment but see photo in tweet. Just the light I believe & definitely no Willow.

Yes. I have asked for “communication “ to go on agenda of next DBRC meeting as I too, think it’s something we can improve on. This is one example I intend to raise.

This takes a lot of time and effort on the part of a volunteer section writer for the Devon bird report - submit your records to or Devon Birds on the correct submission forms...

It appears many Lyme Bay pelagic seabirders stopped sending in records to the recorder due to the 5nm rule, remember its 12nm now! So send them in. I'm extracting those 2018 skuas & tubenoses off Devon Bird news that weren't sent in, but please do this season.

Not falling out boxes. It’s the hole in soffit that’s the problem 😩

Modelled on successful one elsewhere on my house and others I have seen in use. Funnily enough the “natural” openings they’re using here are bigger.

I’ve found live ones so at least some aren’t dead ones being pushed out.

House Sparrows have been nesting in a hole in our soffit board but young have fallen out nest 2 years running. So new des res made & erected. Fully complies with Sparrow safety standards! Hole to be blocked after nesting season.

Blimey that would be a real unblocker! For the time being I’m living on the memory of that pattern in blue & white all those years ago in Nanquidno 😀

Yes they are rather striking and even a bit Yellow-legged like!
