Thursday at the Hide , 17th February 2022
“ I would rather be amongst forest animals and the sound of nature, than amongst city traffic and the noise of man.” Anthony D. Williams.
Ok , the window or to be more accurate a window of opportunity in between storms set to batter the U.K. over the next few days and my first chance to visit the hide this week. The weather has be awful, windy and very damp but what a difference a day makes. Today it’s a glorious bright and dark winters day. And I fully intend on making the most of this temporary window in the weather forecast.
One advantage of the inclement weather has been time , so we have had a little spring clean of the blog. We have simplified the menu choice and re written the location page. ( click here to have a look ) we have more locations in the pipeline and as usual if you have any thoughts or ideas please use the comment button to-get in touch.
And for once the elusive Jay decided to play ball. Posing on a log for at least three seconds ! ( a vast improvement on the normal nano second , and at last a few half decent images ) All the other usual suspects are here with the Robins , Great tits , Blue tits and Dunnock all visiting in large numbers. The Blacbirds have also been very active, perhaps taking advantage of the weather. But there’s no doubt that the Jay has definitely been the star attraction.
