We are new to birding and keen to meet up with local birders so we can learn more. RSPB doesnt have a local group in North Devon. Would be interested to learn of any birding activities in N Devon that we could get involved with.
I live at the other end of the country so can't help with your particular query, but I've bumped up your post in case it was missed earlier.
You could also try a post in the "Hello" section. Look in the "Chat" thread for this. The Chat tab is on the Home Page of the Community Forum.
