Early Morning

I got out and about early on Saturday , i was out to count Chats on the mountain above Wyllie , the sun was out and it looked like spring was finally here. Walking from the car a movement caught my eye, a fox was hunting in a rough field next to me , i stepped back into cover and sorted the camera out , managing to catch the fox walking towards me.

As i walked around looking for the Wheatears, Stonechats and Whinchats , i was surprised to see a pair of Kites wheeling above me only confirming that they are now moving out of their normal ranges.

Bird feeder Rage !

As the level of seed dropped in the bird feeder today competition increased for the dwindling supply of sunflower seed.

Top of the pile were the Greenfinches , nothing forced them off the feeder, with the cold weather still with us natural food is in short supply, hopefully the temperature will rise in the coming weeks increasing the insect activity helping to ease the reliance of the garden birds on the feeder.
