For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.

https://youtu.be/I7dYd-Ra8bk


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

Re: For WHO's birders
Have to say I lost interest in the birds there, but I’ve started trying to feed them again and am getting quite a few sparrows, which surprisingly is an advance compared to back in April - March or whenever it was?

I have to say, I’m at a bit of a crossroads and am in two minds, either go for the RSPB buy and Lowermarshes home made bird feeders or buy an really good air rifle and start shooting the little fuckers?
Perhaps I do both?

Re: For WHO's birders
My goldies are ignoring the nyjer feeder and going for the sunflower hearts. I've ordered a different type of nyjer feeder in case that's what's putting them off.

Would love to see greenfinches, sadly not seen any for ages, we do have daily visits from goldfinches though on the niger seed feeder.

Peregrine chicks have almost got all their flying plumage and are really gearing up now

Aalborg

It's very sad

I also have a pair of goldfinches. They always visit as a pair. Beautiful birds. Until this gorgeous Covid Spring, I had given up on being visited by goldfinches and greenfinches.

Re: For WHO's birders
I saw a vicious aerial battle between greenfinches this morning over my sunflower hearts feeder. To a significant extent they have taken over my garden among the smaller birds. The tits are getting less of a look-in. The robins are less frequent. I am consoling myself with the knowledge I am playing a tiny part in helping towards restoring their numbers after that horrible parasite tore through them.

Re: For WHO's birders
The chicks are now venturing out much more. Note the first signs of adult plumage

Re: For WHO's birders
Could be the Eastern population then. Long way to their wintering grounds then.

Re: For WHO's birders
Really?

Any idea where they winter?

Re: For WHO's birders
There is an ongoing stork reintroduction programme in West Sussex, I suspect these storks are part of that programme.

There are also storks nesting in Norfolk but it seems less likely they are from there.

Re: For WHO's birders
Could be, could be.

We're talking about the Black Stork here. There are two separate European populations, one that usually breeds around the Rhine in Alsace and Baden-Wurttemberg and winters in Spain and Portugal, and the other in Poland/Belarus/Ukraine that winters in Egypt (2000 pairs in Poland alone.

We're having an unusually cold May this year so this pair could be Polish migrants. Have you noticed the "clacking" and the red bill?

Re: For WHO's birders
Definitely Storks pickle, not sure if they are actually nesting in the area but they've been around for more than a week or so.

Hammer and Pickle 10:41 Tue May 26
Re: For WHO's birders
You sure they weren't cranes?

Storks nest on chimney stacks and other man-made structures.

Re: For WHO's birders
Ah!

Yes I thought you would have seen plenty in Spain.

Re: For WHO's birders

I'm down here on the east sussex coast.

I've seen tons of the ungainly bastards in their nests in Spain
