For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.

https://youtu.be/I7dYd-Ra8bk


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

I have seen a few as well. The big bumble bees fly whenever it is warm enough but I have a few honey bees on the winter jasmine as well.

Had a few hours at Cliffe Pools the other day, and saw a murmuration of Dunlin that lasted about an hour. Literally thousands of 'em. Not a peep out of them at times, but still really loud with their swooping.
Amazing stuff.

Those that meander through oblivious to the natural world are blind to the beauty of life

I even saw a bee, Boxing Day, ‘buzzing’ a winter budding shrub, that I have never seen so early

The sparrows here are always noisy and there are loads of them.
Also saw a pair of dunnocks today scouting the hedge.

Blimey

Two pairs of roe - bloody predictive text

Re: For WHO's birders
It’s all happening here too
The resident robin has upped his security game, blackbirds in tandem, the yob squad of starlings climbing all over the feeders, wood pigeons feasting, tits galore, sparrows a plenty and a little wren hopping nervously
A recent arrival of a pied wagtail and above red kites circling like bloody Dorniers
Still feeding the fox family at night and deer have appeared, the small muntjacs and two pairs of toed
As observed elsewhere, spring plants are shooting and the days getting longer

What a time to be alive!

Pesky fucking Parakeets in Upminster screeching every afternoon, cunts.

Saw 2 robins fighting at dusk yesterday, Blackbirds are singing quietly at first light.

Some of the poor little bastards will think it's breeding season all year round.

They'll be falling out of the trees, exhausted.

Re: For WHO's birders
Reckon so - saw a couple of bats on the hunt this afternoon as the light faded. Also the jackdaws have started nest building in the chimney again.

Re: For WHO's birders
Definitely, have got tulips coming up already and I think every year before they haven't shown for weeks after this lot.

Re: For WHO's birders
The blackbirds have been singing for the last week and robin song has become less languid and melancholy and more strident and FRANTIC. Think zeb might be right about spring coming early.

Re: For WHO's birders
Lab..I was down there at the weekend hoping to catch a decent sized pike..just a couple of 3-4 pounders..I was fishing in the basin behind the Waterwitch boozer..didn't see a kingfisher though

Re: For WHO's birders
Put 3 new bird feeders out recently - i've come to the conclusion that the cheap basic feeders are just as good/better than the more elaborate and expensive ones.

Have a jay eating from them every day now, which I'm well chuffed about.

also a squirrel, less chuffed....

Yeah I thought so… wasn’t going to take any chances so I rung the little blue feathered fuck’s neck anyway…

Re: For WHO's birders
They wouldn’t worry about a budgie ,the bill wouldn’t be big enough.

Re: For WHO's birders
Bird related… had a nice letter through the post on Saturday warning of an outbreak of Avian flu in our area and if I had any poultry or wild birds to contact the relevant department so they can come round and shoot all your ducks… wasn’t sure whether to tell them about the Budgie

Saw a kingfisher today on the Basingstoke canal at Odiham.

Re: For WHO's birders
Zeb,

Either really early, or late going!! There are a number of warblers down in the far east corner of Kent still, that should have left weeks ago.
