A nice surprise, hunting near the stone wall alongside the canal
Seen a few barn owls at stodday recently, too
Apparently a lot of them about this winter
Also, haven’t posted for a while, but have seen a green parakeet around these parts recently, including fauna
They’re back , last night 4 May . Should be some good displays this weekend in the pleasant weather. Such a thrilling spectacle, I’m elated to see them again.
Seen 0830 today . Thought he or she had moved on, if it’s the owl seen October 2015. Fingers crossed
Over fauna fields 4.30 pm today. Crows chased it into the orchard and lost sight. However seen again hunting over the ploughed field. Very excited to see one around these parts.
Two young foxes near the canal . Very handsome with their orange coats in the evening sunshine, and not bothered about keeping a low profile. Deer on fauna 6 am this morning, too.
This afternoon near the swan nest towards deep cutting we saw a baby otter. Unfortunately so did a swan, which attacked the otter relentlessly and nearly killed it. The otter was stunned but eventually made it to some cover, where we heard it mewing for several minutes.
Jack snipe near the raised footpath across the marsh about 6pmu on 15/10/14
A few days ago a sparrowhawk was on the ground near the crop stubble with three eager magpies hanging around. The magpies were waiting to see if they could get a share of whAtever the sparrowhawk was eating. Think it was a rabbit which one wouldn’t necessarily expect.
Good to see a single swallow on Saturday 5 April near the canal between haverbreaks and fauna. Also ducklings on the big pond on Fauna the same evening – first of either I’ve seen this year
This evening near Cromwell road gate..
