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.

A dog walk down Harp Lane, Foxhill this evening produced 5 Dunnocks, 4m Chaffinch, 2 Wrens, 1 Willow Warbler , but keeping down in the Hawthorn, as well as the usual corvids.

No sign of Swifts around the village yet.
