WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Wildlife Wednesday – 27-10-21

At last , a little piece of normality and a welcome return to Wildlife Wednesday at the meadow hide. Today I have my wife Anne in the co-pilots seat. The meadow is now starting to enter a dormant stage , autumn is in full swing and it’s noticeable just how quiet the meadow has become . The usual hustle and bustle around the paddling pool has gone , with just the occasional visit from a few Blue tits , Great tits and one Robin.

The exception , the Red Kite. It’s difficult to give an accurate number but there were at least six individuals flying around the edges of the meadow. With the slow down in visitors we are now starting to plan for next year. Options include a new enlarged paddling pool and more tree planting.
