Staying Local

Well here were go again another lockdown with this one coming with tighter travel restrictions, so “stay local” if your using the car your going too far.

Bearing that in mind I had a local walk seeing lots of common species taking in the ponds area, very muddy underfoot wellies would have been a good idea, I wasn’t expecting any insect life at this time of year. The birds seen Common Buzzard was around, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Magpie, Crow, Black headed Gulls, Common Gull, plenty of Woodpigeon, Blackbirds, House Sparrows, Robin, Starlings, the highlight today thou were a pair of Coal Tit….nice to see

Enjoy the nature and keep safe 😷

Out and About

Due to the freezing weather I have been hiding in doors these last few weeks the last two winters have taken their toll and beaten me, I don’t fancy standing around in minus 5 to minus 15 temps anymore not at 50+ so I’ve been hibernating. However I did brave the elements today only for a couple of hours, getting fed up of being stuck in, and went for a stroll around some local village highlights taking a few pictures and catching up on a few bird species that were also braving the elements. It started to snow as I made a start but it soon stopped but the cold freezing temps carried on I manged to see Lapwings, Golden Plovers, Lesser Redpolls, Long Tailed Tits, Grey Heron, Fieldfares, Starlings and a Kestrel for my reward
