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.

Back to sunny Fly Flatts. a.m.

              A good start to the morning with 3 Heron >E



                                       A cronking Raven

   Rare bird for Fly Flatts, Rook >SW
                   Escorted out of the area with 2 Crows.
                                       Over 100 Canadas now
                                        Mallards pairing up.
                                        Still 5 Stonechat present




A bright sunny morning at 10 degrees on a light S >4 with mist in the valleys.
                                                     First birds over were 3 Heron very high and >E, obvious moving birds and a rare species for Fly Flatts. Another rare species for this area was a Rook over >SW being escorted across the moor with the 2 resident Crows which returned as it disappeared over Dean Head.
                                                      A Raven passed overhead flushing 18 Lapwing from the east bank whilst Canada geese are showing a count of over 100 now with several scattered around the fields and moor.
The 5 Stonechat are still present down the track and a Curlew showed briefly by the wind turbines.
                                                    On the way back 3 Skylark were around the Slade area and a 4th up singing making it look like it could be going to be a better year for them this time.
