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.

Qby vis mig + Old Guy Road and Roper Lane watch point.

Just a bit on the windy side this morning with a SW>5 blowing but this did,nt seem to stop the early birds with the best morning so far but slowing down when the clouds rolled in.
A check on Old Guy Road cricket pitch ,now that the season is out of the way , produced 12 Pied Wagtails, 3 Wheatears and 11 Common gulls with more Common gulls in the surrounding fields.
A strong wind blowing at the watch point on Roper Lane with very little in the sky and no sign of the target bird, Pink Footed goose, although sightings are starting to come in now with the first few skeins seen heading >W.
