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.

Ogden vis mig

Very quiet over Queensbury so moved to the promenade at Ogden where things were a little livelier but nothing spectacular.
Finches were the birds of the day moving >S and >SW over the water whilst good numbers of gulls headed >SW.
A quick check on passerine alley found it buzzing with Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs whilst 5 Bullfinch flitted about through the Alders.
Looking across the water the Chaffinch flock was busy feeding around the NW corner.
Reports were coming in of several Redwing flocks >W over Oxenhope but these missed the Ogden area.
