Shame this Heron didn't land in the garden over the Big Garden Birdwatch weekend

RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Sat Jan 24, 2015 12:40 pm

This morning I took part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.
Yesterday a Heron landed in our garden so I was hoping it would come back today, but I was happy with 24 Goldfinches, a Great Spotted woodpecker and 2 Long tailed tits.

New blog post 1st February 2015

Question for you all.

Do deers lick their lips when they are stressed?
I know it is a sign of stress in dogs, I wondered whether it is the same in deers.

Common Buzzards - Ringed bird

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Fri Feb 06, 2015 8:13 pm

This is a blog about a task I set myself - to get close enough to read the ring on a buzzards leg

One night in the secret life of badgers

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Fri Feb 13, 2015 3:59 pm

This is my latest blog about my local badgers.
I would be very grateful if someone could tell me which are males or females or any other observations that I might have missed.

Thanks

Ringed Buzzard details

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Wed Feb 25, 2015 8:36 am

A while ago I photographed a Buzzard with a ring on its leg.
I had an email from BTO with details about the bird, where it was ringed, when and by who.

I contacted the place where it was ringed and last night I had a lovely email back from Hampton Estate and they have passed the details about the Buzzard on to the man who ringed the Buzzard as a nestling.
They are very happy to hear it is fit and well.
It would be great to go to Hampton Estate sometime and see where my local Buzzard comes from.

These are the pages on my blog with the story

Roe deers

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:12 pm

Roe deers are quite easy to find on my Local patch. I think most times I go out I see at least two.
Sometimes they are out in the fields, sometimes walking through the woods.
