26th April

While we were out doing our home work today at one of our stops we saw red deer, male and female hen harrier, a buzzard and a short-eared owl having a dispute over food. Also seen were geese, wheatear, swallow and a quick fly past by a greater spotted woodpecker, all this with the sound of a cuckoo in the background. Home work was never this interesting at school, sorry no photo’s as my camera was left at home (by me!)…. so if you want to see wildlife, leave the camera at home, it works every time.
