25 July 2011

Haven’t managed to get over the Reservoir much recently but there are a few Hobby around at the moment with a couple of juveniles seen (as well as the adults). I also had a fly over Peregrine on Saturday. Lots of Whitethroat around the garden at the moment and I had a family party of Treecreeper and a Nuthatch in recent days. For the first time in nine years I have had no attempts at breeding by Tree Sparrow, however I noticed yesterday a Grey Squirrel checking out the nest boxes. I will have to take measures!

I also have a problem with a pair of Red-legged Partridge that have taken up residence in my garden. They seem to think that I am putting out grass seed for there benefit, so my lawn is still patchy!
