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.

Out amongst the Goldcrest. . Ogden.

        Plenty Goldcrest but no Yellow Browed Warbler.




A late afternoon visit to Ogden with the intention of sifting through the Goldcrests still clinging to the hope of turning up a Yellow Browed Warbler or even an early Firecrest, well you,ve got to think positive in birding.
As expected, busy with the public during school holidays but not too drastic in the grey cool S>4.
No sign of the Goldeneye but a female Goosander had replaced it on the water keeping to the NW corner, otherwise it was down to gulls and Cormorants.
                                     Goldcrests were in good numbers along passerine alley with around 15 individuals counted but no sign of Treecreeper or the Chaffinch flock.
The Kingfisher was also absent but by now it was 1630 hrs and getting towards roost time.

MEET PIPPA.
I know nothing can replace Rooney but this little girl we went to see today certainly put a smile back on Lyndas face and will fill the gap in the birding team when she grows up. We pick her up in 2 weeks time when she,s old enough to leave her mother.
