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.

On Wigeon watch, Ogden

 Plenty small gulls favouring the west shore

                                     Down to 3 Cormorant
                                        1 Little Grebe still present


With several Wigeon on the move I thought Ogden worth a try with plenty grazing shore to go at but after a good scan around I came up with a blank.
The ad Gt Crested Grebe is still present along with 1 Little Grebe but no Canadas tonight.
Around 80 BHGs, 25 Commons and 7 LBBs on the gull scene and again no Passerines other than Robins and Chaffinch.
As well as Long Tailed Tit, Treecreeper seems to have disappeared as I have,nt had one now for 18 months whereas they were once common around the perimeter of the water.
                                                                 Plenty Swallows >SW in migration mode over the village today.
