down the woods & up the trees

Looking south over Durham
(Click: Cathederal centre, Segiston left & Bearpark right, Cleveland Hills on the horizon)

Honest, i didnt touch it, i just fell over as i walked past . . .

200 Swallows & a dozen or so Tree Spugs round the farm,
The woods held 2Crossbill, small nos of Siskin, Goldcrest & GSW

2 for John


Another time, another place :-

An invitation to a local golf club -
sadly we forgot our golf bats,
but did remember to bring @20 Tree Spug boxes ;-)

A dozen passage Wheateaters, Dabchick pr with 3 young etc

Hopefully a superb Spug suburb to come, sev birds in area....

Later, we went to shut a stable door after a horse had already bolted . . . .

sickened time lucky

LO box repositioned, tree crown lifted, inspection hatch firmly "battoned down"

Next projects -
Green Light for x2 pole mounted BO boxes there,

after 10 year its had its day - Kestrel following on from Tawny owl this season, both pairs getting young off.
