I will be updating this blog with video clips taken from these nest cams every time I get any really great action on my […]

En route, she came across the boar and they started to groom each other. The cubs continued to rive about and playing – so full of energy.Mum […]

During the last few days alone I have spotted: red kites little owls short eared owls tawny owls barn owls Also, thankfully, some pheasants sparring – just what I needed for a painting I am planning. How do you like the photograph I took? And, most remarkable of all, ‘Kes’ the kestrel I thought was lost – […]

Valentine’s day wasn’t the most romantic for me and the Mrs. It turned out to be the only day I could get together enough friends – and borrow a teleporter – to put up my new badger hide.I’ve been working on this for months and it was fantastic to see it finally in place – five metres high in a tree opposite a badger set.I have fitted it with double glazing and insulation so I […]
