WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Wildlife Wednesday , 26th January 2022

Wilderness is source of Happiness..”  Kedar Dhepe

Wildlife Wednesday, a welcome return for me and the first WW of 2022. Once again I’m at the wildflower meadow hide and its a glorious warm winters day , very little wind and perfect weather for a spot of wildlife photography. After last nights encounter with the young vixen I’m hoping my luck stays with me for a bumper day of wildlife sightings.

It’s the first time this year with no ice in the paddling pool so a little maintenance is in order. Removal of dead leaves and small pieces of wood, replacement patches of moss and a few new rocks and it’s as good as new. We have plans for a second larger pond in front of the hide later this year but for now the paddling pool is the main water resource at the hide.

Anyway , back to wildlife sighting. All the usual suspects are here including Blue tit , Great tit , Long tailed tit , Robin , Chaffinch , Dunnock , Wren , Blackbird , Song thrush , Great spotted woodpecker , Wood pigeon , Crow , Red kite and Pheasant. A couple of less frequent visitors include the shy and timid Jay and Redwing. Mammals included the Bank vole , Grey Squirrel and Hare.
