Spent a few early mornings and evenings over at the Old Buckenham Country Park site to check out how the wildlife is progressing. Great to see the male kingfisher using the perch we put out, he visited between 6 and 7AM, first catching and eating a fish himself, then catching 4 more fish which he turned around so it was head facing out (if they eat one they take it head first so the spines and scales go down easier) and flew to the nest each time to give to his young, hopefully see some young soon! The pond is in a lovely spot which catches the sun nicely.
While waiting for the Kingfisher, the Barn Owl was hunting successfully, taking plenty of short tailed field voles back to the nest box, so hopefully we will see some Owlets soon!
There are now loads of Swallows and House martins about, diving in the ponds and taking the many flys and gnats around. Difficult to photograph as they move so fast!
And there is always the ever present Swans as well!
It really is turning into a mecca for wildlife and a joy to watch the daily developments.
