Week 10 – 13/03/2011

dadosch youtube It has been very quiet on the going out and about front but not quiet in the back garden. Due to the op we haven’t been anywhere so it has been garden watching.

The hedgehog has been in an out all week, frogs have been caught mating and now we have frog spawn! I have started taking photos of it everyday to check their progress.

The Siskins and Goldfinches are still here in big numbers everyday. The blue tits are checking the nest boxes and it appears that one is being slept in overnight. I am going to get a new next box cam and the USB 4 channel DVR to link them to the computer and hopefully stream them.

Today I have seen a crow and a buzzard both carrying nesting materials. Also had a Raven flying overhead.

Other good birds this week include the first sightings in the garden of House Sparrow and Coal tit for a while A nuthatch was calling and a great spotted woodpecker has been drumming away.

Hopefully get out more next week!
