No sightings of Roe Deer, 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.

 An excellent day weather wise, if not bird wise, with blue skies and sunshine on a light N>3 at 0 degrees rising to 2 degrees during the day.
                                            Big expectations of Pinks starting to head north today in the clear skies after being pinned down the last 2 days with rain and fog but the sky was surprisingly quiet with just a few Herrings and Common gull. 
                                          Still no gulls settling in the top fields, even though they are now thawed and boggy, with just a single Lapwing and the usual corvids and Starlings. A noisy Raven was over the trailer compound whilst a group of 8 Meadow Pipits were mobile, moving from field to field.
                                         Three hardy passerines still up there, with a Blackbird, a Wren and a female Stonechat whilst 16 Canada geese flew over Soil Hill area towards Ogden.
                                        Hard work birding at the moment but keep chipping away at it. Hopefully , the police are trying to get Boris to clarify the exercise rules by giving a mileage for travel after being copped out on his bike 7 miles away from his home which they say was ok as long as you dont take a flask of tea?? The mind boggles!!!

Yes, I expected some 'pinks' as well today Bri. We did 2hrs in Wheatley Valley this morning but didn't come back with much at all but it was nice to see some sunshine.

Its just good to get out Dave. I,m sure the birds will get moving shortly. They,re already getting Common Sands in MC country.

The common sand is wintering Brian.
