New species for Ewelme Cress Beds this year

Friday 20 October 2017

I thought it was about time I put something on this blog as it has been so long. Species number 72 for the beds this year with a flypast Curlew. A few redwings and meadow pipits passed through earlier in the week but no water rail or little egret yet.

New arrivals

Monday 29 May 2017

At Ewelme Chiff chaffs and Great Tits have been very successful with 5 Great Tits and what looked like a family of 7 Chiff chaffs.
A pair of Linnets also turned up - not common on the cress beds.

More from Ewelme pond

Thursday 25 May 2017

At least three Broad Bodied Chasers emerged from the new pond judging by what they left on reed stems but I think the frog had had enough of the kids, crawling up the bank for a rest!

The damsels are here

Monday 22 May 2017

The new pond is looking a picture and, this afternoon, was graced by at least 5 Azures and a Large Red. Also spotted an unidentified Newt. Did it find the pond or did someone put it there?

Wet and windy here in Torcross

Sunday 30 April 2017

About the best of a rough old day were/
was a pair of Bullfinches eating Dandelion seeds on the grass a couple of metres from the window.





Light wasn't good and taken through double glazing - at least that's my excuse!

Fox looking for bird nests

Sunday 16 April 2017

Ewelme Cress beds. I assume this fox was looking for young birds or eggs but, on this occasion, appeared to fail and wandered off dripping to search elsewhere. Plenty of rabbits - surprised it didn't concentrate on them. First House martin over the site and the Green Sandpiper seems reluctant to leave.
