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.

Herring gulls on the move.

A bright start to the morning with Herring gulls moving over >SW from first light with a count of around 53 by 0900 hrs when the move fizzled out.
1 Cormorant went over the garage >NE shortly followed by 9 Golden Plover in the same direction.
A quick check on Raggalds Flood and Pit Lane found 2pr Mallard and several small gulls on the flood and 210 Lapwing on the football pitch along with c200 Starling.
                                                  No late afternoon session when a 1300 hrs hospital appointment with Lynda saw us coming home after dark, you can only watch Goldfish swim around a tank for so long before it gets boring.
