June Is Here

The action has kept going at our Evening Wildlife Watching Hide and the Badgers have been coming every night. No sign of the cubs yet but they should not be far off from visiting us as last year they didn't come to the hide till the end of June. There have been plenty of Wood Mice and a few Bank Voles to be seen and there are now young grey Woodmice being seen alongside the yellower adults.

In the field below the hide, both Red and Roe Deer have been seen. Tawny Owls and Woodcock have been heard and most excitingly (and this is something rarely heard from the hide) is Grasshopper Warbler, which makes a loud ringing sound like that of a grasshopper!

The Pine Martens have been appearing and they're in their sleek summer coats, chocolate brown on top and creamy yellow underneath.

We've also had a number of bird visitors when there's daylight. Such as Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Woodpigeons, Chaffinches, Blue Tits, Great Tits and Coal Tits.
