Out and About Again

Sunday, March 16th 2014

It has been a busy weekend for the Bodgers.  Yesterday they held a stool making course that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.  Today was their monthly meeting.  The Nidderdale Bird Watchers came to the reserve and their list of sightings included Brambling, Tree Creeper, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Long Tailed Tits.

The leaves of many flowers are beginning to grow through the leaf litter.  These Bluebell leaves can be seen along Risdale Beck and also on the moor.

Wild Garlic or Ramsons are also just beginning to show through the soil.

Moorhen can be heard on lake and sometimes seen.

Washing dishes can sometimes take a while at Foxglove as the 'washer-up' is easily distracted by the birds visiting the feeders outside the kitchen window.  Coat Tits, Greenfinch, Long Tailed Tits are all vistors to the feeders whilst underneath Dunnock collect any dropped food.

The first 2014 Chiffchaffs have been heard on the reserve and the first Grey Wagtails seen! It is all happening!!
