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.

                     Several blogging Meadow Pipits this morning
                   Few Dunnocks present
                                  The res.

                               2 Herons working the far shore

                                Getting the mobbing treatment

A cold wet start to the morning with heavy rain which cleared by 0800hrs leaving clear skies with an icy cold SW>5.
Nothing of great excitement today either on the water or in the sky with Starlings and Woodpigeons being the star movers with very few Thrushes.
A small flock of Great Tits came in but after landing briefly moved on >S.
5 Teal showed for a couple of minutes on the water before disappearing up to the west end and out of sight.
Nice to chat to DCB at Oxenhope on the phone and compare notes.
