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.

Queensbury South

With a million jobs to do this afternoon birding had to take a bit of a back seat limited to a quick check on Tracys Wheatear field, Shelf Moor trailer park but no sign of Wheatears. The field was active with around 15 Meadow Pipits, 4 Lapwing and a Mistle Thrush whilst 4 Snipe dropped into the juncus field to roost. The car boot sale field off High Cross Lane held around 40 Fieldfare and at least 2 Redwing with several Lapwing in fields along Corporal Hill,
                                                           Otherwise a poor day with thick fog till midday then hazy skies all p.m. with limited visibility.
BS.
