This is the stall we had with the RSPB, i was volunteering with them this week, encouraging people of all ages to build and take away a bird box, getting it up in time for the breeding season. We managed to build 25 boxes that day, hopefully inspiring people to do more for giving nature a home.
Can anyone guess what this is...... Yes its the stunning colors underneath the tail of a nuthatch, we have now caught 2 of of them at a new sight while trying to target Marsh and Willow Tits but no no success yet.
A good day out Yesterday produced a fantastic array of wildlife and finds. We went out specially to find the elusive Lesser spotted woodpecker...... in the first wood no such look but look what we tripped over.... a fantastic single male Roe deer Antler. We also managed to find 2 possible Buzzard nests and one with fresh greenery on.......exciting times. When the sun came out we had plenty of bird sounds with GSWP, tree creepers and and loads of tit species. 3 Badger setts looking like they are well used.
Highlight of the week is getting the job at Malham Cove with the RSPB and YDNPA for the 2014 Peregrine Falcon Viewpoint, Starts on 5 April till 4 August, Saturday to Wednesday 1030 till 1630.
so yes you will have to put up with my ugly mug up there all summer
SEE YOU ALL THERE!!!!!!!
