  • Forum Thread: A Few Familiar Faces In Regent's Park

    As it was a nice clear, sunny day today, I decided to take a walk through Regent's Park in order to get a better lit photo of the Tawny Owl. Unfortunately it was not there, but the smaller birds were out and about, so I made the most of their presence and took a few snaps. A raucous Robin (which...

  • Forum Thread: A Brief Visit To Lingfield

    Last night I stayed with friends in Lingfield after we had seen Steve Hackett (formerly of Genesis) performing live in Brighton.

  • Blog Post: April 2014

    This past month has seen our species list grow with the summer migrants arriving in the UK.

  • Forum Thread: Local patch walk, yesterday 24 April.

Interestingly though the flight path seemed slightly less erratice while he was in persuit of the lady friend. Then spent some while listening to this male Redstart, wishing he hadn't chosen...
  • Media: Blue Tit, Cyanistes caeruleus, collecting fur.

    This is the last of the fur from our much-missed golden retriever. When we combed him, we always kept it in bags for this time of year. The local blue tits seem to find it useful.
  • Blog Post: Now that April is here – say β€˜Yes’.

    10th April As gentle a day as you could wish for on the Solway: golden sands and blue channels reflecting the cloudscapes of the sky; the odd feel of a shower in the light wind; the yellow of the gorse, as early as I have ever seen it - could it be the lack of frost that has promoted its early growth...

  • Blog Post: Sing your heart out

    Some of us might not have recovered from the clocks springing forward last weekend, but our birds have definitely been making the most of that extra hour of daylight!

  • Forum Thread: Teamwork!

    I have just witnessed something amazing in the car park area at my place of work. There are one or two small, low bushes around the perimeter and a pair of Blackbirds has chosen to nest in one of them. The nest is about 3' from the ground, but the bush is open on one side and appears quite vulnerable...
