Bovey Heathfield

A walk last Sunday around Devon Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves at Bovey Heathfield, Little Bradley Ponds, and Chudleigh Knighton Heath.

There were lots of stonechats on the heath, and Canada geese on the ponds.

There was also an interesting nest, apparently made entirely from grey lichen, with a perfect circle of lichen on the ground underneath.
