My Nature Diary

Stoat Spotting!

I moved office today at Whisby Education Centre into the classroom. From where I was working I looked up and low and behold, a stoat trotted out from behind the Education Centre. Bounding along the path without a care in the world! It had what appeared to be a disagreement with a Bramble at one point, but then merrily continued to the Wildlife Garden where I lost sight of it...

About an hour later I was lucky enough to see a Hobby fly across the edge of the lake from the same view point!

The Coots appear to have stopped picking on each other today (Yes, its that time of year!) and instead turned their attention to driving the Gadwall out of our sheltered bay of water... territorial birds!!!

Update on the new bird feeder and the marvellous mammals

Well, the bird feeder is proving a hit with the Great Tits who have been visiting it several times a day! It'll be perfect at our next Watch Meeting at Whisby Education Centre on 14th February when we're going to be looking at birds and all of their brilliant adaptations!

I've also had a group of children the centre today looking at and for evidence of mammals. As well as looking at skulls and poo we found some mouse nibbled hazelnuts!!! - A great find as they were still attached to the tree! Some adventurous nibblers here at Whisby!

New bird Table :)

Today at the Education Centre we've had a Bullfinch fly into the window. I can report that luckily it is OK, but it did spill it's seed lunch all over the window!

We've just installed a new bird feeder as we've seen an increase in the number of birds around the area, including up to 4 goldfinches hanging from the Teasles, flocks of 12 Long Tailed Tits hiding in the willow and loads of Great Tits sitting on the fence.

Hopefully we'll have lots more visitors soon!
