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.

Soil Hill

                                   How much more digging can the hill take?
A bit of rain at last but not enough to safeguard the moors from springtime fires. The moors have been ablaze on Ovenden moor today by the wind turbines,hopefully the quick response of the fire brigade caught it in time before too much damage was done.
Soil Hill had the whole of its summit scalped and roughed up making it now water and vegetation less and now the clay extraction means all the eastern slope is being ripped away as well as the bottom pond and NK pond being left useless. Im suprised any birds now use the hill but still they stick on in there returning year after year to find another chunk of habitat gone.
With the vegetation and scrapes gone from the summit there has been no wader presence this year as yet and it looks unlikely that a visiting Dotterel will be tempted down but we shall see, watch this space.
Needless to say, back at work and no birds to report today, hence the babbling on like something from an RSPB documentory
