Exmoor Dartford Warbler survey
In hindsight, it would have been better to have left Bedfordshire at lunchtime on Friday, and taken a leisurely drive down to Somerset, but we had to do a full day's work. So we arrived at the campsite in Porlock some time after 10pm, when it was dark and we had a tent to put up - a new tent which we'd never used before.
Spent Saturday and Sunday mornings looking for those pesky Dartford Warblers in the wilds of Exmoor.
Saturday afternoon was spent chilling out and reading the papers in the sunshine; Saturday evening was spent in the pub and Sunday afternoon was spent packing the tent back up and getting home.
And yes, we did find some.
Species added today:
177. Dartford Warbler
