Having taken on the research reins at Hope farm during the winter, I've not had chance to update this blog as I'd have liked, from now on I plan to add some sightings info and commentary on the happenings regards research on the farm.
Whilst out on the farm this morning, was fortunate enough to watch 6 Brown Hares chasing around and indulge in a small bout of fisticuffs. Skylarks have begun to sing in earnest and even the odd yellowhammer have been asking "for a bit of bread"
Yesterday saw a single Golden Plover fly south west over the farm, the first seen for a while and the Marsh tit was again frequenting the orchard, where starlings are busy inspecting the various nest boxes. Wont be too long till the first spring migrants arrive.......
