During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Woodpigs and Starlings.

A good start off this morning first light with Woodpigeons coming over in good numbers >S and >SE whilst large flocks of Starlings very high up headed >SE in migration mode. Both these movements had ended by 0900hrs.
A customer rang this afternoon saying he had seen a large flock of geese,100+, from Green Lane over lunch time >SW which coincides with DJSs grapevine report of  130 Pinkies over Pellon way also lunchtime.
Thats 2 large skeins over Queensbury in two  days, things are looking up.
Where were you at lunch time with the camera Tracy, thats your patch?
Midday saw a few Meadow Pipits over >S and 2 Alba Wags >W.
Whilst I was walking up Chapel Lane at tea time a female Sparrowhawk whistled through a group of Starlings and disappeared over the bungalows empty handed.

Unfortunately work got in the way Brian!

I saw a little owl this morning where the Grey partridge usually are. It looked right at me. I stopped to reverse and take a photo and it flew off!

I will be ready for it tomorrow.

Interesting with the 'pinkies' Bri - they came directly over our house while I was grass cutting!So I rang Nick and they went directly over his house as well justa sw he was coming out of the house. Perfect directioning. I think your customer must have seen the same flock (12.25 over Lee Mount).
