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.

What a difference a day made.

A strange game this birding, yesterdays vis mig had skies filled with Woodpigeon, Fieldfare and several small passerine species , the Woodpigs and Fieldfares coming over in their thousands , yet today, as NK described it, " like a tap had been turned off ", with empty skies throughout.
Just a handful of Woodpigs came over >S and otherwise nothing. A call to HC at Oxenhope gave the same story there with very little on the move although he did get 14 Whoopers over the Ogden area plus a skein of Pinkies far out to the east.
                                                             Yet on the other hand DJS clocked up c 7000 Woodpigs over Ringby just a couple of miles to the west of us.
Foxhill park at lunch time produced 8 Redwing low and >E  along with 4 Chaffinch high and >W.
After that it was back to wallpapering for the rest of the afternoon.
