30 Days Wild – Days 28-30

Sorry to be wrapping this up with a single post, but for the same reason I didn’t get the posts up, I also didn’t really get chance to do much over the final three days.

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_28Day 28 was mainly spent at home, lamenting the loss of the entire nest of blackbirds. It’s always sad to see, but you have to console yourself that if the pair had two broods and succesfully raised one chick from 6-7, that’s actually pretty good going.

The bullfinches and goldfinches continue to visit the feeders on a daily basis, but there have been very few sightings of chick.

Day 29 I took another walk round Heslington Lake, where the goslings are growing fast.

As usual there was train-birding to be done, though mammals were more frequent with Roe Deer, Fox and Hare all spotted, in addition to the usual numbers of rabbits, wood pigeon, magpies, crows, rooks, and buzzards.
