Roe Deer and Chicks

Sorry for the long wait for a new blog. Spring is moving on and there has been quite a lot of activity in the bird boxes. 42 now are up, 24 have had nests started and 13, all tits, have commenced egg laying with today seeing the first chicks hatched. Five Pied Flycatcher nests have started. Hoping for a late rush of Flycatcher nests like last year when 4 came after 8th May. rather worryingly for the garden, we have seen a Roe deer in the field adjoining us. Farmer Paul has been reporting several sightings locally over the last month. Plenty of hedgehog sightings most nights.

First eggs and Fly Bees

Posted on 9 April, 2020 at 16:07
All sorts happened today, firstly on my morning walk through the wood saw a Redstart followed by 3 or 4 Pied Flycatchers. Having checked, it's the earliest date I have ever seen them return for spring. The Pied Flycatcher were already looking into a hole high up an oak tree.
Getting home saw an unusual bee type insect in the conservatory. Managed to get it out, then later saw two more down in the garden. Having looked it up they were Dark Edged Fly Bees, reasonably common this time of year in southern Britain. Not sure if we seen then before.
Then whilst in the woodland garden saw a Dunnock getting very agitated. I had a quick look in a nearby privet bush and saw its nest with 3 blue eggs there. It's the third year they have chosen a privet bush for their nest, but close to ground really.
