My next stop was a wonderful little reserve just next to the A38 and a short distance north of Newton Abbot.

How many happy memories have been made at Stover?

Thousands I’d guess. It’s a fabulous spot for bird watchers and dog walkers alike.

A place were the casual nature lover and serious birder can co-exist with an equal sense of satisfaction.

The ease of access, and variety of wildlife visible in a one hour make it well worth a visit.

My best ever sightings here were a Pied Bill Grebe, Bittern, and Brambling.

Last Monday I made do with squirrels, two large dragonflies, Willow, Blue, Great, and Coal Tits, Nuthatch, Chaffinch, and a Goosander.

Here’s a view across from an are undergoing refurbishment.  On the High Res original I can make out Coromorant, Tufties, and Black Headed Gulls.

A small boy cried because the visitor centre was closed.

What “Mummy” may not have realised is that a nearby 59 year old was also equally disappointed!

I went back to the car, with the aim of taking an Autumn shot.
