Siskin New Forest

A great new venue for watching wildlife has been achieved by my Sister moving to Burley Village in the New Forest and in late February, early March visits I was entertained by Redpolls and Siskins greedily setting about her Bird Feeders. First to arrive were the Siskins who happily shared the feeders with Goldfinches, Sparrows […]

Wild Deer Bishop's Waltham

Mid winter sent me, as well as my usual two wildlife patches around Bishop’s Waltham just to Titchfield Haven, Totten and the New Forest. Around the Patch included 100’s of Redwing.

Chiffchaff in early Spring noisy mode! […]
