Short tailed Voles

Bank Voles are back !

Although the Voles have been active all through the winter surviving on the seeds dropped from the bird feeder above , they are now more active and more aggressive with each other , fighting and chasing each other around the feeder base and flat stone slab , under which they like to hide ,they seem to be Ok with me being only a meter or two away .

hopefully i’ll get some more pictures in the near future.


Road kill for the Fox

Picked up a road kill Grey squirrel today and put it on the post for the fox to have , didn’t have to wait too long before she turned up at the usual time .

Spring 18

It almost felt like winter had finished , until this week , with temperatures down in single figures. but despite this some nests already have young ready to fledge , these Thrush youngsters won’t be in the nest much longer , i’m really surprised they’ve made it this far as the parents chose to nest on the side of a lane in the bank in full view under some tin sheet.


Other birds in the garden now are also starting to nest , and are regular visitors to the feeders ,


I still can’t find where the Nut hatch is nesting though.
