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.

National non birding day

With the son in law rushed into hospital for a appendicitis op this morning we were on child minding duties so bang went my tea time birding session as the grandaughter at 2 yr old is not just ready for Soil Hill yet so at 0830 hrs tonight all was well after the op and we were  able to pass her back and unwind.
All seemed quiet on the dog walks with nothing in the sky and just a few Common gulls on Foxhill park.  Sainsburys car park this afternoon was now completely cleared of berries and just held a few Goldfinch on the Alders.
                                       The fog has just come rolling back in tonight so its looking a bit grim for the morning but I,ll be out there having a dabble.

Amazing how the berries went so fast - 2 weeks or so ago they were still loaded.

You can imagine how quick a flock of 100 + Waxwings clear a Rowan. At least once the berries are gone they,ll start venturing into gardens for Hawthorn and Cotoneaster. I,ve got my halved apples stuck out on branches ready, it got me 6 Waxwings on the last big influx a couple on years or so ago.

Op went well ta John, coming out Sunday aft.
