Our feed The Birds event this weekend was a massive success and really drew in the crowds, the site was exceptionally busy all weekend and it was a fantastic weekend. On top of this, we had a fire at the back of Sandy Ridge on Sunday and six fire engines attended to deal with it.We had some great birds-a black redstart sat on top of the roof looking down on the Feed The Birds event at The Lodge, ravens flew over, an osprey was seen again, perched on a dead tree on the new heath with a fish,the woodlarks were also  again on the new heath,crossbills and bramblings flew over and to top it all, the stunning firecrest in the picture was ringed, alongside a goldcrest, for a perfect comparison opportunity!

Another good sighting this morning, a merlin was seen dashing over the new heath- I wonder what's next on this great run?
