During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Just one of those days !!!!

In contrast to yesterday today was poor from start to finish with not a bird recorded.
1530 hrs and the call of the Bramblings at Ogden were stronger than the little voice in my head saying," dont be silly, the place will be heaving". Unfortunately I never learn so off I went hoping the lateness of the hour and the black clouds would send people packing off home.
A quick talk to JL on his way back from Soil Hill then down to Ogden lane where the voice in my head was laughing saying," I told you so". The whole area was grid locked with cars everywhere trying to get into and out of the car parks so a quick about turn and up to Ned Hill track.
                                                                  By now the sky was black and heavy drizzle was moving in from the  west along with low cloud and after a quick check along the track and finding nothing it was back home and cut the privets .
This mornings Vis Mig was once again marred by fog and drizzle until after 0900 hrs and despite Redwings reported over TMR nothing ventured over Queensbury throughout thr day.
Hopefully there will be a clear bright window tomorrow opening the sluice gates to let the winter thrushes pile through.
When I was working full time I longed for my weekend birding sessions but now I long for the weekdays when you can get to Ogden with ease.
