A visit to the Hide

The Birds are busy again after this very quiet period. Looks like all the young have fledged, here are a few that i took this week.

Help at the Hide.

Can i thank the few people that came down to the Hide last Thursday to help plant 3 new Shrubs and move some heavy logs about. They also help cut the grass back on the path area.

Out in the Car

I was very concerned about the Blog with the ongoing leg and back problem, so i went to see the Barn Owl in Bentham. This is one of 3 Nest Sites. Thay are all still feeding the young so it could be any day now. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Short Eared Owl

My first Short Eared Owl for 5 years, seen up near the Big Stone as you go out of High Bentham and head out onto the moors. It surprised me as i was looking for Skylarks in the fields when it appeared from nowhere. Not my best but still a good capture for the moment.

Grey Heron Display

Me and Ruth went for our lunch by the river in Kirkby Lonsdale when a Grey Heron flew past and started to fish, this was a great treat as the Heron is so hard to get close to. Think it must have been last years young as it let me film with a bit of… Read more »
