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.

Fly Flatts p.m. Second soaking of the day.

                      1 of 2 Stonechat by the lagoon
             Return of Barney. Not the yellow leg ringed bird
                                         The larger of the two.






                                          Red Grouse on walk about
                                    Canadas pairing up on the moor.

Fly Flatts at 1445 hrs in terrible conditions with a strong SW>6 and several torrential horizontal rain showers.
             A pair of Stonechats were by the lagoon as I arrived but very flighty and disappeared after the first heavy shower. Seven Canadas were in the boat yard along with a single Barnacle goose which was the larger of the 3 that were present in 2017 and looked like the one that hung around last year with the smaller yellow leg ringed bird having a distinctive face shape which always looked chubbier cheeked than the other two. I don,t think that chubbier cheeked is true birding lingo but you,ll see what I mean from the photo.
                                            The Barnacle left with 3 Canadas towards Cold Edge during a particularly heavy downpour but returned 15 minutes later on its own landing at the north end of the water.

See if the other ringed bird returns now. The third one never showed last year.
