WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Wildlife Wednesday – 17th November

At last a day off and a chance to visit the meadow hide. Today i’m joined here by my wife Anne. The weather here in north Wiltshire has definitely started to change, winter is on it’s way and it’s now time to start using the blankets again !

I really expected it to be a slow day , but the hide was buzzing . No sign of our new fox’s , however we had a singe Reeves Muntjac wandering around the meadow together with a grey squirrel and single rat.

The real surprise was the large number of birds. A large flock of Redwings , flying back and forth across the meadow , Blue tits and Great tits , Robins , Blackbirds and Wren. By the end of the day nearly 20 species all told.
