I don’t see or hear many yellowhammers – a small yellow headed bunting – on Dartmoor but they do live around the fringes on the agricultural land. They are pretty birds which you often hear before you see them. They have a characteristic call which is often described as sounding like ‘a little bit of bread and no cheeeeese’.
Following on from yesterday’s beer themed post on the Dartmoor Brewery, another Devon Brewery Hanlons make a beer called Yellowhammer. An interesting co-incidence – the yellowhammer in the photographs above was taken by the ‘Dartmoor Brewery’ barley fields. Wonder if I can make any further connections with this place and other Devon beers ….. It’s a bit too far from the Teign for otters but this is an area for brown hares -> name that beer!
