No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.

Nesting Season.
With birds already starting nesting early this year any birds of a sensitive nature will be omitted from this blog if I suspect their being mentioned could effect their well being by disturbance in any way during the nesting season. Passage birds will be reported as normal.

Nice one with the Twite Bri. Did you put some seed down or not? I will put some down this week if not.

Put some Nyjer in the usual spot Dave. These birds looked new in and very flighty so couldnt see any rings.
Was going to get an Osprey today but thought it wouldnt be fair on Jen so didnt look.

PS good one on the Wheatears Dave, tried round there this morning but no joy

Lots of shore showing there Brian. It looked to me as if some new scrapes or ponds had been formed beyond the north shore the last time I was up there at our Spring watchpoint... am I dreaming this or have you seen them as well?

As you say Dave, tons of shoreline but it can fill very quickly when the rain comes. I think the ponds have always been the same, its just with the water being so low. All we need now are the waders.

David Sutcliffe said...

Some new ponds were created late last year in the top NE corner just away from the res'r and not easy to see unless you are on the top road or the track around the far end. Probably half a dozen ponds or so and some have been left with a small island. Not sure if YW have done this or not but they could be an asset for Dunlin/Redshank etc. Well done whoever did them!

David Sutcliffe said...

Shoreline is disappearing fast this afternoon (Monday)!

Dave Barker said...

Yes Dave... these are the ones I have seen. First noted them back end of last year. Not sure at this end who has done them either so will ask around to see if I can find out.
