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.

A windy, showery Ogden.

   Plenty shoreline grazing for the Canadas.
                                                   Big Bill


                                        Sun going down on the Cormorants

With near gale force W>6 blowing and heavy showers it was a dash to Ogden late afternoon to see if anything had dropped onto the water which unfortunately it had,nt.
A walk round the perimeter found it busier than yesterday but still no sign of the tit flock.
A flock of around 30 Chaffinch were feeding on the shore by passerine alley but very mobile in and out of the Willows whilst at the top of the Alders 3 Siskin and a single Redpoll struggled to hold on in the wind and quickly moved deeper into the plantation.
                                                                Robin numbers are building, on of which was a very shy fidgety bird with a very pale breast which could possibly be a continental.
Otherwise it was down to the usual sp both in the bushes and on the water.
30 minutes sky watch from the promenade failed to pick up any Pinkies and still no returning Kingfisher which is worrying.
                                                 Cutting it fine on September Pink Footed geese now so come on Tracy, you,re our number one skein spotter. Someone must get some over the weekend.

Vis mig was poor this morning in the strong wind and soon stopped altogether when the rain came.
