    Somerset Birding

    Sounds like a great day out ... I also visited Steart on the same afternoon but was not so lucky (was hoping for a Peregrine and Golden Plovers!).

    Attacks on birds of prey

    Very sad, it makes me angry to think this is still going on!

    Nice spot! Unfortunately, It's the only UK falcon I haven't spotted in Somerset yet. Perhaps I will have to take a trip up to Blagdon...

    Another Petition to Ban Driven Grouse Shooting

    Signed! Only 100 signatures to go now :) This should show that we will not back down, and that we want a better handling of the debate. I honestly fear that if something major does not happen, we will loose the beautiful Hen Harrier very fast.

    Springwatch 2017

    The shows have been really good! I my favourite part tonight was the kingfishers, his art was so beautiful and I have never seen kingfishers in the nest. The part about the whales was really interesting too, I didn't realise how big of an issue entanglement was :(

    Dorset birding

    I walked the SW coastal path walk around Portland Bill last Monday, from The Hights Hotel to lighthouse. Just the usual birds, a lot of Fulmars too. But we had excellent views of two Peregrines at Freshwater Bay. They seemed to be doing some sort of courtship display and were flying around...

    Magpie's attacked young bird. What to do?

    Sorry to hear the little bird died, but well done for doing your best to help it. Unfortunately, it is just nature and like the post above says, the magpie has to eat too. Hopefully other birds in the nest fledged :)
