Saturday 27th July

We were in the Rough chatting with EG who was ringing again this weekend when this cheeky chap wandered through:
Fox
Looked like a youngster and quite skinny which may explain what happened next. EG went off to do a net round and found the Fox trying to steal a Blackbird from the net! EG managed to rescue the bird but not before it had sustained a few nasty looking injuries. Not sure if it survived the encounter but will update when I hear from EG.

Kestrel
This female Kestrel was keeping an eye out for any passing small mammals on 100 Acre.

There is a guided bird walk tomorrow starting at 8am. Meet at the visitor centre.
