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.

Fly Flatts pm visit

                                               5 Siskins behind the Delvers
                                                Poor pics in silhouette conditions.



          Another pot of gold for Queensbury. From Hunter Hill

Fly Flatts early evening was wind blown and cold with nothing on the water although a car was at the boathouse meaning that boats would have been out on the water this afternoon.
A Raven was cronking over the Bumps but keeping out of sight whilst 2 distant Wheatears were down by the Red Legged Partridge pen.
Only 4 Canadas showing on the banking with most now moved on.
A single Blackbird flew over high and >W which must have been a mover.
                                                                 On the way back 5 Siskins flew over the road in front of me and settled in the garden behind the Delvers feeding on an Alder tree along with 2 Chaffinch and around 12 Goldfinch.
An interesting e mail today from Shaun Radcliffe confirming what DJS and me were talking about the other day with several Yellow Browed Warblers arrived on the east coast where Shaun picked one up in church ravine, Filey so I,ll be giving passerine alley ,Ogden, an extra coat of looking at over the coming weeks and then of course its Firecrest time. !
