This blog follows my travels and bird/wildlife trips, in words (few) and photos (many probably)!

Decided to take a look at the Forest of Dean today. Sadly NOT brilliant! New Fancy View, no feeders this year, so not too many birds around. Speech House, the usual log had no food on it, and so no birds again. Brierley, not a lot going on there either! So stopped off at Cannop ponds, near the feeding station. A lot of activity there, but other than a pair of Marsh Tits showing on & off, nothing really special. I mentioned that we had not seen a Sparrowhawk here, which you would think would be regular with the feeders around. Ten minutes or so later the birds went mad as a female Sparrowhawk went through the feeding station, it missed!
