Birds in the camp


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.
