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. BS.

Woodcock on the move

                                      Darkness over Paul Speak Institute, a landmark for birds.
                             Evening closing in over Foxhill.

A cold N>5 blowing but wall to wall clear blue skies this morning which is not the sort of sky preffered by moving birds. A few Mipits came over >S as well as small flocks of  Chaffinch and Goldfinch >SW.
The highlight of the morning was a Woodcock low over the garage >S from the direction of Station Rd which is a rare sighting for this area apart from a similar sighting on two previous years during autumn migration.
A good scan around Shelf Moor this tea time of the Pink Footed Geese flight paths proved fruitless with just half a dozen Lapwings in the area.
