Welcome Back

Filed in Projects on May.22, 2020

Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers are two of my favourite summer visitors to our shores. When these birds arrive I know our summer is just round the corner. They travel all the way from North Africa to raise their family in a beautiful part of the Peak District, before heading back to Africa.

Redstarts Return

They travel all the way from North Africa to the UK to raise their young before leaving for Africa at the end of summer which I find amazing.

Long-Tailed Tit Project

Filed in Projects on Mar.12, 2019

Recently I found a pair of Long-tailed Tits that were building a nest in a dense hedgerow protected on all sides by thorny branches. I’ve spent as much time there as I can, working from a camouflaged hide to minimise any disturbance to these tiny birds by my present.
