A few bits and pieces from the two day tree laying session this weekend .
Yesterday , the air was full all day with the constant chattering of Siskins , the feeders in the middle of the reserve are taking a real hammering . During the morning , a single Common Buzzard passed overhead calling . Before lunch , two Common Buzzards overhead , being mobbed by a Sparrowhawk . At lunch time , we had 11 Common Buzzards , thermalling together about a mile away from where we were sitting .
Today , with bird ringers due on site , I got there early , before the nets were put up , but unfortunately the promised broken sunshine didn't show , but the Siskins did .
The promised sunny periods never materialised , until I reached home , too late .
As for the trees due for laying , all layed .
