Once again it’s off to the Meadow Hide and today I’m joined in the hide by Anne . It has been a quiet day , with the meadow now at its full height it is nearly impossible to spot any of the mammals , let alone get a decent image . They are definitely still here but are now lost in the tall , thick grasses.
The birds are still here , raiding the various feeders around the hide and visiting the paddling pool to drink and have a wash.
One noticeable visitor was a bald headed Blue Tit. It certainly stood out in the crowd. The most common cause of feather loss is probably a mite infection. Other than the loss of nearly all the feathers on the head it looked in good health and the chances are it will make a full recovery and re grow the head feathers.
Here’s a few more images…..
