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.

Foggy Oggy

                                 Another bogey bird, Treecreeper
                                  2 of 4 Nuthatch
              Definitely not a photographic morning

A trip to Fly Flatts was quickly scuppered this morning with dense fog yet again up on the tops and even Ogden was dark and misty brightening mid morning as I left.
The 25 Mixenden Canada geese had ,as suspected, roosted at Ogden and left towards Mixenden at first light. Nothing unusual on the water but small passerines around the edges are starting to build up with 4 Siskin, 8 Chaffinch and several Tits and Goldcrests with still no sign of Long Tailed Tit.
                                                            Amazingly my bogey birds for last year showed up in style with 1 Treecreeper and 4 Nuthatch, the latter being 2 on the info centre feeders and 2 on the lodge house feeders. All were showing well as well as the Treecreeper but the light just made any chance of decent photos impossible.
