Short And Sweet

There’s just a short post today with a few bits and bobs to report together with a couple of photographs.

At Knott End: 5 Little Egret, 3 Pied Wagtail, 4 Meadow Pipit, 1 Rock Pipit and 4 Eider. I put some Nyger out for the Twite which appear to have gone missing for now unless the black stuff can tempt them back.

Meadow Pipit

At Lane Ends there appeared to be an influx of 8 to 10 new Blackbirds, plus an accompanying Song Thrush, but I saw the now silent Jay.

Lane Ends to Fluke Hall via Pilling Water: 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Grey Wagtail, 12 Meadow Pipits, 8 Little Egrets, 2 Grey Heron, 1 Reed Bunting, 7 Skylarks and 1 Buzzard. Less Whooper Swans today with circa 140 plus the incongruous Black Swan. 20+ Chaffinch at Fluke Hall with the normal titmice and 1 Goldcrest, and it’s another non-show for the latter species again this autumn.

Great Tit


Grey Squirrel – “Tree Rat”

Black Swan and Whooper Swan

The forecast looks a little better for weekend with a possibility of a spot of ringing.

Funny and interesting to see a Black Swan among the white swans! We have a lot of these black swans in Thailand but I still haven't seen any of them made it into the natural habitat like that.

Que belleza nos muestra el esquirol, es precioso al igual que el carbonero común, el petirrojo en estás fechas veo muchos por aquí, son bellísimos y difíciles de captar para mi. Un abrazo Phil

Hi that ice glaze on the ground in first image...already? Gray Squirrels...I once raised 63 in 8 years for the wildlife person said she considered them to be Bobcat fodder, so I got all of the orphaned squirrels. They can be sweet, they can be trouble and we have had our share of both. That is one cute Robin!
