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.

Limited time today with Lyndas 3 monthly hospital check which went ok so an hour at Ogden pm to find passerine alley quiet in the WNW> 5 keeping the insects at bay.About 15 Chaffinch were up and down from the Willows onto the shoreline.
JL reported a Little Grebe earlier today and this evening 2 were present along with a drake Tufted which is possibly the usual visitor. The Grebes kept at distance in the far NW corner and were diving continuously.
Around 80 BH gulls, 4 LBBs and 8 Common were present along with 5 Cormorant, 1 being a juv.

A text from KM this evening reporting a different Greenshank at Oxenhope reservoir with coloured leg rings. Thanks for that Keith.

a while.
