    No announcement about Springwatch 2021 as of yet!

    Lesser Whitethroat added this week. I wonder if there are any "commoner" birds which have not had a camera on the nest yet in Springwatch? Carrion Crow? Collared Dove? Corn Bunting?

    Those changes are hardly the biggest problem in the world? I didn't even notice them.

    Sea Eagle attacking a Heron

    Female Goshawks have been recorded killing Grey herons a few times so why couldn't a Sea Eagle?

    Red-tailed Hawk and Common Raven Battle

    I remember watching a couple of youtube videos of Red Tailed Hawks predating pet cats. That surprised me.

    They sound like an almost tropical species.

    There has been a bird calling in the background where Iolo stands for his live segment - what is it?

    Visiting the North East of England

    I have built up a picture and I am guessing I won't be stopping off at Newcastle as it seems a bit of a distance. In terms of nature reserves I would hope to visit:- Coquet Island Druridge Pools/Bay Farne Islands Holy Island and Lindisfarne NNR Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve, Historical...

    No announcement about Springwatch 2021 as of yet!

    I am disappointed with a base at Norfolk - I know it has been 10 years since they were at Pensthorpe but they did stay 3 years at Suffolk. Don't get me wrong perfectly superb places but surely they could keep away from the South East ?

    Visiting the North East of England

    Hi, I have never been to the North East of England so I hope to visit in early June. What I mean by the North East is Newcastle and further North. I would hope to see Roseate Tern on this visit amongst other species. I am a National Trust, RSPB, WWT member so will make the most of them...

    Help me complete my British owl list!

    A local Long Eared Owl nest gets many visitors during the breeding season. It can be like Blackpool up there. I can only assume that whoever let this site out must have told the next person "not to tell anyone" and they promised "not to tell a soul!"

    Goshawks

    Sounds like quite an exciting area and I totally agree with your description of the female Goshawk like a flying crucifix. The bird I see is quite a solid looking bird. Interestingly Crows do mob her but she does strike back and they do move on. That baffles me because usually Crows are...

    Thanks. It was shocking to see how powerful it looked next to a Buzzard!

    What did you miss in 2020?

    Interesting to hear all the changes people have experienced to their annual birding. Some quite nice places mentioned which I had never heard of before. The 100 species in a day is quite an interesting aim. I have managed 93 at Spurn in early October 2016 without even really pursuing a list...

    Macqueen's Bustard (Asian Houbara) hunting in Pakistan

    I wonder what target species could survive in those regions?

    Coots can fly!!!

    A few Coots spend late winter, spring and early part of summer on my local patch which is a reservoir with steep sides. They try breed and almost always fail. They just appear out of nowhere and then disappear into thin air. I have never seen a Coot flying before.

    Goshawks

    Their is one bit of woodland the female is over quite a bit now. If it came down to it could the male and female both with anklets on raise young together? The female is quite big. Here it is with a Buzzard.

    Macqueen's Bustard (Asian Houbara) hunting in Pakistan

    Very little wildlife survives in those areas and one unreported casualty is the numbers of Stone Curlews - difficult to see at best of times but barely and are recorded. Gazelles have vanished from the areas they hunt in too. What will they do if the species becomes extinct?
