Apologies to anyone who visited the bird hide at Presthope over the last few weeks and found the feeders empty, this was simply due to a lack of time as we were busy making hay whilst the sun shone. Normal service has resumed and the birds are using the feeders again to top themselves up whilst also making the most of the natural food currently on offer.
Birds seen on Saturday 3rd August over a 30 minute period include,
Marsh Tit, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Blue Tit, Sparrowhawk, Chaffinch (eaten by Sparrowhawk), Greenfinch, Nuthatch, Blackbird. A Peregrine Falcon also flew overhead.
