In reply to Alan.:
I always hold my breath when these two meet up.
We've had a hedgehog and fox in the garden at the same time, and interestingly, the fox gave the hedgehog a wide berth!
Perhaps the fox tried it's luck and found out the hard way, those spines can hurt.

A pair of GS woodpeckers feeding their young today in woodland. Brief glimpse of one of the young in the hole but didn't catch it on the clip. Took around 15 seconds to make each feed and returned every 2 minutes (just posted them arriving and leaving).
The nesting kestrel in the local valley popped up for a little bit today before settling back down on her eggs.

Very excited Wendy but keeping my distance, leaving the camera in the field taking shots. Very sad about our Sheffield Peregrines....I do love raptors, incredible animals, especially kestrels, my favourite.... this was a brief clip of a 30 minute video from the camera left in the field and she was super alert to planes above, families walking by and even idiots on motorbikes in the woods...
A couple today, both from Big Moor. Swallows buidling a nest under the bridge and still no signs of fawns but the antlers are very slowly growing back for the red deer; very slowly.

Superb videos everyone,
A small contribution, a very recent visit to RSPB Conwy (photos and report in another post), which was a bit quiet, but there was a hungry heron, feeding well, and moved verty close to the Benarth Hide.
Unfortunately I didn't have time to get the tripod out, so my humblest apologies for the camera shake, and the very short footage, it soon flew off.
