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.

Fogged Off yet again !

Didnt get back until 1515 hrs after grand daughter duties with the weather miserable with light snow and murky skies.
Just time to get up to Soil Hill for a quick check of the seed to see if anything new had dropped in but as I arrived at the top of Perseverance Road the fog had got there before me with a few yards visibility and with no time before darkness to go anywhere else it was a quick divert down Taylor Lane and home. The Lapwing flock was over the Raggalds with a count of around 80 but no Golden Plover present whilst a Sparrowhawk whistled across the front of the car by Foxhill school.
See what tomorrow brings, hopefully not fog.
BS
