Sheep and berries

Monday, October 25th 2010

The sheep on the Wetland were making the most of todays sun. Especially after the cold,damp day of yesterday.

Sheep on the wetland

Our ringing team were kept busy with a wide variety of birds which included a Great Spotted Woodpecker, a Reed Bunting, a Song Thrush, many Tits and Finches. Also a few Blackbirds were ringed, which have not been seen around for a while. There were sixty-six new birds ringed today.


Whilst a lot of the fruits around the Reserve are coming to an end there are still some Rasberries, Blackberries and Rowan berries about. There is a vast array of red berries everywhere you look - with Holly, Rosehip and the very prolific Hawthorn.
