BREEDING SEASON EXCLUSIONS.

As of now through the duration of the breeding season all schedule one birds , red status birds and birds of a sensitive nature to this area will be omitted from the blog or reported as undisclosed site due to the widespread persecution of nesting birds by unscrupulous parties including game keepers and egg collectors.
Any of the above species that are obviously on passage through the area will be reported as normal.
This also applies to wildlife such as Roe Deer, Badger and Hares which are badly under threat from poaching and long dogging in the area at present and unfortunately this exclusion of wildlife will have to continue throughout the year.
Just another sign of the times.

Redcar Tarn

An early afternoon visit to Redcar Tarn whilst her indoors was having her hair done didnt amount to much with every man and his dog there and 2 nuggets with noisy model speed boats screaming around the water.
Plenty BHGs and a few juv LBBs but no sign of the Med gull whilst Pied Wagtail numbers were down probably flushed to the surrounding fields along with the gulls.
A walk around the circumference failed to turn up any migrants.
                                     The highlight of the afternoon was bumping into NKs associates DW and DM on a bird searching mission, hope they were luckier than me.
I may get chance of another quick dabble early evening.
