November has been an excellent month for wildlife sightings over the previous 2 years and so far it has not been disappointing this year. A bittern has been reported both yesterday and today at Ivy North Hide, so hopefully it won’t be too long before we can post a photo on the blog. Yesterday the osprey performed really well, feeding on a large trout. I managed to see it from Goosander Hide at the same time as a peregrine dispatched a black-headed gull and ate it on the grass to the right of the hide.
Thanks goes to Lorne Bissell and Jon Mitchell for the following photos all taken from Goosander hide.
Today 2 bramblings, several siskin and a lesser redpoll were reported at the woodland hide and a peregrine was seen at Tern hide.
