more new homes


a few more new homes up, as part of the DBAP Barn Owl Action Plan.

a draughty old ruin, not much cover for him in here

hope he'll move 50 yards into this one in this Oak


poorly plover
looks like its hit the fence - tried to nab it but was still strong & too quick for us.




Dull day, but had to cover a bit of ground on foot to reach isolated trees, the resultant silver lining being that we managed some birds:-

In the AM; 1,200 Fieldfare with some singing in the rain, 1,000+Starling, 4mReed Bunting on territory, 1mWheatear, 1hTawny Owl, 1mBlack Grouse, 4mYellowhammer, 1Little Owl, 1Barn Owl in draughty roost, 1Jack Snipe was a surprise, room for 1,000's of em up there i suppose, prStock Dove, 1GSW.

In th PM; 1,200+Golden Plover, 1Buzzard, 1,000+Fieldfare, 600+Starling, 3mReed Bunting, 1Short-eared Owl, prStock Dove, Meadow Pipits & Snipe displaying.

Back again soon i hope.

1000 Fieldafre - I'm impressed. Looks like the goldie might have hit the fence?
