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.

Not the best start to March. Ogden

                                       Nuthatch on the feeders
                                         Little Owl enjoying a sunny spell

A free afternoon today with Ollie so off to Ogden to see if anything nice had dropped into the water to start March off but it never happened. Unusual to see a Moorhen down in the feeding corner briefly before it flew up to the NE corner whilst a Cormorant was on the depth float. Otherwise it was down to 6 Canadas plus a Nuthatch on the feeders + the usual sp.
Just 3 Herring gull >W in the sky.
In nearby fields a flock of around 40 Starling and 20 Fieldfare were feeding whilst a Little Owl remained motionless on a dry stone wall.
                                                                   The car park trees held plenty Goldfinch and Chaffinch but no sign of Brambling.
