My first woodpecker! :-) I know it's a female, but is it a Hairy or Downy? I'm leaning more towards Hairy, but I'm not sure.

The Cirl Bunting is on the RSPB Red Status list, The RSPB estimate there to be a population of only 850 birds. They can only be found on the Devon Coast between Plymouth and Exeter.

A survey in the 1990's showed that there were only 118 birds. Since then there are some very successful on-going conservation projects to help protect their environment that include the way the farmers farm their land.

They were not too difficult to spot, however, it mean't crossing a field with a number of huge Bulls that were blocking the gate and appeared not to want to move so I could pass. I decided to go for the long detour about a mile to get round them. It's not easy to run with a 500/f4 and heavy rucksack.

They are absolutely beautiful birds that are camouflaged very well.
