    A shortish walk in Glen Lethnot this afternoon.  No deep snow, but slippy underfoot. The corries had a semi-decent covering. The Water of Saughs was quite icy. Spotted a Dipper there, but c

    Visits from the odd Cormorant are fairly common place down at Tehidy lake, Cambornre,but unusually the one that dropped in for a while 5 years was quite tame and you could walk up to it while it had a dry out on the path

    Stork chicks deliver joy for rewilding team at Knepp estate

    White stork chicks have hatched in the wild in the UK for the first time in centuries.

    The parents were spotted last week regurgitating food for the chicks and removing eggshell from the nest in an oak on the Knepp estate in West Sussex.

    The chicks are a victory for the White Stork Project, which was disappointed when eggs believed to be from the same pair failed to hatch last year. The alliance of private landowners and conservation groups hopes to have 50 breeding pairs in southern England by 2030.

    The last successful breeding pair recorded in the wild in Britain nested on St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh in 1416.

    There were five eggs in the nest and the team from the project have yet to confirm how many have hatched.

    The female was brought by the project from Poland in 2016 and the male is likely to be one of about 20 vagrant storks that visit the UK each year.

    Lucy Groves, project officer, said: “The parents have been working hard and are doing a fantastic job, especially after their failed attempt last year.

    “These are early days for the chicks, and we will be monitoring them closely, but we have great hopes for them.”

    Isabella Tree, owner of the Knepp estate, said: “There’s something so magical and charismatic about white storks when you see them wheeling around in the sky, and I love their association with rebirth and regeneration. They’re the perfect emblem for rewilding, a symbol of hope.

    “It’s going to be amazing to have them back in the British countryside, bill-clattering on their nests in spring — perhaps even setting up nests on our rooftops.

    “When I hear that clattering sound now, coming from the tops of our oak trees where they’re nesting, it feels like a sound from the Middle Ages has come back to life.”

    Stunning

    Thanks to Birdlife Australia

    Dusky Woodswallows – our pic of the week!

    On a cold morning in QLD's Jimna Ranges, Ken Cross of Australian Bird Safaris came across a flurry of feathers. On closer inspection, Ken realised it was a cluster of roosting Dusky Woodswallows. What a shot!

    Just set up the camera with the remote phone shutter. Went off to sort the drinks and asked the OH to press the button if one of the parents came back. She took this....

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
