Thursday 4th April

In addition to the normal visitors at the feeders there have been a few larger varieties, and this morning five Mallard drakes were waiting, managed to capture two on camera, see other photos and video.icon_10_generic_list.pngMagpie and Carrion Crows at feeders 25 th March…x_8px.png

Latest news on the swans, the female (white ring TYP) of the pair that have nested over the past few years, has been missing for a few weeks and it’s Male partner? has been on it’s own on the fishing pond. (coincidentally we also found the remains of two swan wings but unfortunately no legs to confirm it was definitely the female TYP)
The good news is that two other swans have taken up residence on the long pond and hopefully they will nest this year.
