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.

Saved by the Woodpigs

If it wasnt for an early morning move of Woodpigeons >S my day would have been birdless. Up to 150 came over reasonably high between 0700 and 0800hrs but after that the skies were deserted. Midday saw a few small gulls moving around but with no definate direction and 2 Pied Wagtails were on the football pitch at Foxhill.
A reliable customer rang this morning reporting seeing a single Swallow over her garden at Uplands yesterday afternoon heading slowly >S. Dont think we,ll get many more sightings this year now although I once had 2 over EGP on the26th November but that was a one off and many moons ago.
Nice one on the Crossbills today at Ogden, see Queensburybirders for NKs report. Theres a bird thats declined drastically in numbers around this area over the last few years.
