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 early a.m.

Ogden 0800 hrs and still dark in a cool W>4
Nothing unusual on the water but a full walk around the circumference found it lively but too dark to attempt photos even when I was leaving at 0930 hrs when the whole area was in silhouette.
The highlight was a cronking Raven over >N and 3 Treecreepers together, one of which stayed about 10 yds from me which would have got me the best photos ever but in the low light the camera refused to even try and focus.

Goldcrest...............6
Treecreeper............3
Gt Tit.....................2
Coal Tit.................11  near feeders
Wren......................6
Robin.....................2
Dunnock...............3
Raven.....................1>N
