I have decided in my moment of madness to give space to the Nature/Wildlife I see at my place of work, things I see on a Lunch Break. There is a lot of wildlife/nature on this small site, of which I have only given a secondary mention in my other blog http://huddsbirder.wordpress.com/, so now I feel its time to give it a full blog status, hope you enjoy.
It’s a place surrounded by farmers fields, small wooded area with a small pond at one end, with a brook running along the side. I’ve worked here since December 1998 and have been keeping a record of the various Nature and Wildlife on site.
Breeding birds on site are Bullfinch, Treecreeper, Grey Wagtail, Nuthatch, Wren, Robin, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Great Tit, Blue Tit and Swallow most years, Dipper was a breeding bird in the early years but is now lost has a breeding bird with only the odd sightings in some years. In the Summer months we attract Chiffchaff and Blackcap as breeding birds, with Willow Warbler only passing throu, hasn’t stopped to breed yet.
We attract the common grassland butterflies and various moths along with Dragonflies and Damselflies (see other headers) and of course lets not forget the various bugs and creepy crawlies that’s about
