We put out fat balls and wildflower seeds in and around the camp to look after the local bird population. Here are a selection of photos we’ve taken of some of the birds that we’ve seen. None of them are rare, but it’s still a great joy to see and hear them when we’re out in the woods.
Robins and blackbirds are both regular visitors.
We also get a few different types of tit in and around the camp. This year we have a long tailed tit nest in an ash right in the middle of the camp!
Nicola took this photo of a chaffinch at the weekend, during our 5 Day Bushcraft Course.
On our Tracking & Nature Awareness course a couple of weeks ago we had a buzzard right over the camp, just above the tree tops; unfortunately no one had a camera to hand to get a photo; this photo was taken last September.
