New Mammal Species: European Wildcat !

A very exciting New Species first recorded in December 2018: A Beech Marten photographed by Trail Camera at the hide pond:

White Stork with a Coloured leg-ring foraging at our Spring on 6th January 2018. This bird is 21 years old !

It was ringed in Portugal a distance of 12km away, on 26th May 1997. 20 Years, 7 Months and 11 Days before it was spotted at our reserve.

New Species: Quite a rare autumn/winter migrant inland: Squacco Heron

Our first Endangered Species recorded on the reserve. A juvenile Egyptian Vulture !

 

As opportunities arise a variety of bird songs and calls will be posted to the website, especially for species that have not yet been photographed. All such recording will be made on site on the nature reserve.

Other animals, such as frogs, may also be recorded over time and sound files loaded. The first sound file to be loaded is the song of the Common Quail on the Bird Field Guide page.
