Weekend Wildlife at the Meadow Hide
Wow, a bumper day of wildlife watching here today at the meadow hide. All the usual suspects made an appearance , together with a few new faces and a surprise fly past by an old friend.
As ever , leading the parade and representing the mammals we have the leaders of the pack , the brown rat. Once again our little friends were out in force. There’s never a dull moment with these cheeky chaps around. The bank vole or should i say voles were also out and about today , along with the grey squirrels.
The birds of prey were also out in force. Red kite , buzzard and kestrel.
Not forgetting our smaller feathered visitors. Wren , robin , chiffchaff , dunnock , blue tit , great tit , wren and chaffinch all ticked off , there was a fly past by a single long tailed tit , a bird nor seen at the meadow for a few months . And two new arrivals , a marsh tit and gold crest. And i can’t forget Woody , the great spotted woodpecker.
