  • Forum Thread: Aggressive blue tits?

    After seeing some distinctly spring like behaviour from my birds (despite it only being the first week of Jan!) this morning I put up a blue tit sized nest box. I didn't expect much joy as I'm limited with options in my small garden, so the only site was only about 2 metres off the ground and...
  • Blog Post: Mild Mid-December Diary.

    14th December A mild pleasant day, if not a little dull. Aerial flights of waders - mostly Dunlin, dominated the stretch of marsh from the Viaduct to Scargavel Point - with plenty of activity on bird feeders in the area. A peaceful scene at high tide as Shovelers came sailing by. Aerial...
  • Forum Thread: Day 3 - Leighton Moss RSPB (MC Pics)

    For the third and fourth days of my visit, we went to RSPB Leighton Moss, with an overnight stay at the Pine Lake resort, to allow for an early start on the Tuesday and cut down on the driving.

  • Blog Post: Dave's Birdy Bit - 18th October, 2015

    Mixed flocks of Fieldfare and Redwing are currently feeding on the Reserve.

If you walk around a woodland in the winter you may be forgiven...
  • Forum Thread: Old Friends With A New Camera (And Now A New Lens)

    One week ago, I posted some photos of my garden regulars which I had taken with a 'new' Canon EOS600D camera. I say 'new' in so far as it is new to me. It is a used model, but is in great condition and ideal for me to experiment with. This had been kindly given to me by a very generous...

  • Forum Thread: Activity On The Coconut Feeder Updated 13th August

    Back in the Winter, I bought several three quarter coconut shells which were filled with fat/suet/seeds etc. They were very popular, especially with the Starlings.

    Each year, a pair of Blue Tits nests in the cavity wall at my place of work. They nest just above second floor level. On Monday, one of the chicks left the nest too early and didn't make it.
