  4. Hello! Very impressed that you have gone technical after so many years of recording on paper! Great site. Any other feedback yet? xx

  5. Hi Wye Fliers,
    thanks for your comments, yours is the first !!
    the observations are still committed to paper first !
    with the current weather we are going through bird food at an alarming rate !

    cheers.

  19. Hi Peter. Interesting blog. Have you worked out how to upload the pics yet?
    Here’s a question for you: I notice you have Redwing mentioned on your all-time list but no mention of any appearances recently. Can you shed any insight on to why, after never having seen a Redwing in this area, I am practically falling over them just now, including one wonderful day last week when my pal and I came across a field full of them along with Fieldfares – also not a regular that I can remember. Is it a weather thing?

  20. Hi Fiona
    Duncan came up for the weekend and explained a few things so I reckon I will be able to do most of what I want with the blog now
    Re Redwings, yes , it is pretty much down to the weather ,together with Fieldfares they are birds that breed in Northern Europe and a proportion of them winter in the UK every year , the proportion is largely dictated by weather conditions in Europe, their behaviour in the UK is also subject to the influence of the weather and in a typical winter will spend most of their time on farmland but this winter with increased demand on food, mainly berries , from resident species icluding our other thrushes, our Scandinavian visitors are trying their luck in residential areas. In our area we will generally see them more in evidence in a normal winter, but even then we record them most at the start and end of the period as they move in or out of the country. Also, we always see many more Fieldfares though there are often a few Redwing amongst them , only occaisonally will we record flocks of just Redwing. If I look back through the Autumn’s records I think I would find odd days when we had them. Through the worst of the weather we have had one or two Fieldfares passing through, one odd item has been the number of Blackbirds over wintering at Willowbog , not quite worked out the reason for that !

  37. feb.3rd.
    two foxes came through the garden in the early afternoon, not in any hurry , made there way down the drive before cutting through to the main pond where they followed each other across the ice, dissappearing out into the forestry ground to the east. They were both very fit looking with large bushy tails, clearly not suffering with the hard winters weather !
