A mallard duck has at least five small ducklings on School Pond.
Also, meadow vetchling by the Fauna Stones
Just to say that we may be getting a few test blog posts today while we’re giving people a chance to have a go at blogging, so don’t be surprised if there are a few off-topic posts.
Once again a late posting of what we set out to do:
Here are some more flowers observed today
Honeysuckle (Hay meadow / Upper Sowerholme boundary)
Water Cress in same location
And woody nightshade
Moving from the boundary into the field which teems with yellow rattle
And to a different location – the hedge between the Paddock and the allotments for foxgloves
These male and female bullfinches visited our feeder yesterday and this morning, but were frightened off by an arrival!
This female greater spotted woodpecker (no red on head) fed heavily on peanuts.
But, who is this?
This is a young male greater spotted woodpecker on an apple tree – so finally we do have a male around!
The young woodpecker was being fed by mum, but did some feeding on his own as well.
