Prime Time

A simple gatepost on a promising sunny morning in the middle of May is the typical time and place to find a cocky little redshank eyeing you up and just letting you know that he’s there… ;)

Late agricultural operations and the risk to nesting birds

Yesterday I was involved in a discussion on Twitter about farmers rolling grass fields at this time of year. I have a bee in my bonnet about this and have already written on my blog about the subject (Reduce buzzards by 80% and feed sparrowhawks turnips – August 17 2013, and The bad news and the good news – November 17 2013). 503 more words

Redshank - Staines Moor

Another from Staines Moor! Time to visit somewhere else when the rain stops I think.  This Redshank (Tringa totanus) was taken last week on the moor, they’re surprisingly quick in the air too! 10 more words

Bedrijventerrein/kantorenpark Papendorp is nog in ontwikkeling en daardoor is er nog veel open ruimte. Een braakliggend terrein vormt dan een geschikte broedplek voor Tureluurs en Kieviten. 17 more words

Naturelog: Aln Estuary

When I visit Northumbria, I stay in Alnmouth a beautiful village sandwiched between the North Sea and the estuary of the River Aln. Although Birdwatching is not my reason for being there, I do look forward to being able to do one of my favourite walks down the River Aln to the estuary and then back up the coast side of the village past a small marshy area. 393 more words
