February frost

Skylark ringed and released 

A full moon and clear sky last night saw us casting long shadows across the rape field.

Nighttime bird ringing using a thermal imaging camera to locate the birds in the semi-darkness. But they located us before the ringers located them.
Result? A foot stamping cold night out under the stars.
Josh and Rich caught and ringed one skylark.
Winter aconite

A single barn owl ghosted along the hedgerow.

And white-over for the morning walk. Brilliant sky and great-spotted woodpecker drumming an accompaniment to a distant yaffling green woodpecker.

Bird feeders loaded and ready.
