Went to Northward Hill today as people on here like birds.
Well what a disaster, , we walked, and walked to the area it get a look at the Herons. Walked down loads of paths until we got to the Heron Viewing area and guess what? NO HERONS, just a lot of noise but due to it being overgrown we could not get anywhere near them.
We sat on a bench really quiet but after 20 minutes not a single Heron flew over, we called it a day and walked back taking shots as we went.
Chaffinch ? looks like it in my books, notice I have more that one now, (I borrowed two).
I cheated here and got this from the hide by the entrance.
Down across a stream we trundled, loads of birds in the distance but too far away for me.
Past the Cherry Orchard and this pretty sign.
Dandelion seeds ready to fly
Rabbit for Holly and Daisy, see how close you can get to them if you are quiet!
There were loads of Rabbits about with their little white tails bobbing.
Back to the entrance.
Chaffinch, not sure now, this one looks more like the one in the book, I know you lot will tell me what it is, I am confused. Looks the same as the first one to my untrained eye. I won't give up though, I will try again.
Well I am worn out now, need another boat trip.
Thanks for looking.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
