Urban geese.

Postby Callum M » Wed Jul 27, 2016 7:32 pm

This blog is about the urban wildlife that can be found in London's Hyde Park, and in particular, the three species of geese that are found there. There's also an exotic green bird, a parrot in fact! Read the blog to find out more about the wildlife that thrives here even in the middle of a city.

An amazing kestrel encounter.

Postby Callum M » Thu Jul 28, 2016 2:09 pm

On almost all of my recent visits to a nearby grassland, I’ve seen kestrels, but a few days ago I got a rather special encounter.The kestrels live here, and I saw the juveniles with the parent bird. Read the blog to find out more about these brilliant birds.

The marsh frog.

A quick post today about the non-native marsh frog. This frog is larger than the common frog, and is also the largest native frog in Europe.

Bonaparte's gull- in the UK.

Postby Callum M » Tue Aug 09, 2016 2:17 pm

This blog is about my search for a Bonaparte's gull at a marshland nature reserve on the north Kent coast. I had heard there had recently been sightings of it, so made a visit. This species is very rare in the UK, as it is found in North America, and at the time, there were only two individuals in the UK- the other a juvenile in Northumberland.
The lake was filled with thousands of waders, all of different species, sizes and fabulous colours. The tide was on its way in- on our side, bringing with it the waders and gulls, but did I get to see this bird? Read the blog to find out.

Bird feeder experiment

Postby Callum M » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:09 pm

This blog is about an experiment involving peanuts at a bird table, to see if the birds prefer peanuts with the skin on or not. Read the blog at the link to find out the results so far for this.

I'll continue to write blogs about this experiment and the results soon to see if birds eat certain peanuts.

Dungeness, the juxtaposition of wild and artificial

Postby Callum M » Mon May 29, 2017 9:44 am

This blog is about a visit to Dungeness, and how the wildlife is right next to a nuclear power plant. Is the wildlife here affected by the nuclear facility, can they coexist?
