Yellowhammers In Pond!

  • That's really nice Jake.
    I suspect your pond may become a regular feature here.

    Thank you very much, its only about a week old but I had a relative with a lovely pond thats about 30 years old bring me a load of cuttings, I've planted them all but they just need time to grow in, hopefully that'll bring in the amphibians and grass snakes.
    Today my uncle is coming round with his rotavator to churn up a decent sized patch of dirt for wildflowers, which I reckon will attract loads of things (insects > predatory insects > birds > birds of prey)
  • Fantastic to see such a varied selection of birds at your pond and amazing to see the Tawny Owl and Buzzard plus Green Woodpecker visiting; thanks for sharing this enjoyable trail cam footage.and for doing your bit for wildlife.

  • Those yellowhammers were certainly having a splash. Nice footage.

    Haha, that one isn't my video, I was referring to it in a reply to Robbo as a video I saw with Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers visiting a pond!
    Hopefully one day I will have those birds of prey come down haha!

    The yellowhammers are mine though! I went round to reset my trail camera and saw a pair of toads on the margins which was awesome.
