09 June 2013 Life at the Hide

11th June 2013
I went down to the hide on Sunday and i was amazed how much the vegetation had grown in just two weeks, consequently I had to spend 45mins weeding and pulling up nettles and that was just so that I could fill the feeders!!

After I’d filled the feeders it did take some time for the birds to come in but the first Yellowhammer of the year paid a visit.

A wren visited a couple of times and posed just long enough to get a few decent photos.

Other visitors included Blue Tit, Great Tit, Blackbird, Greenfinch, Dunnock and Chaffinch.

I also shot some nice photos of a Robin feeding a chick.

Last but not least I had a short visit from a Rabbit, I'm sure there are lots of them around the hide but generally I don't see them.

Close to the hide I also spotted four adult Lapwing with two chicks.

Thanks for reading
