Have you seen any of these guys around the Gardens? They’re our top three to look out for!
On the left we have the Fieldfare. We’ve already seen one recently, but we’re hungry for more!
In the middle we have the Redwing. Similar to the Fieldfare with a speckled belly, and similar to a Song Thrush, but with a fantastic flash of red.
Finally on the right we have the Waxwing. There’s no mistaking this guy! Waxwings are a flighty bunch, so you’ll have to be quick to spot these colourful wonders.
You’re most likely to see these birds in the avenue of trees. Let us know if you see any!
We were happy to spot a Fieldfare in The Hidden Gardens this week. They’re listed as red status by the RSPB as they don’t usually breed in our neck of the woods.
Fieldfares are Wildlife Watch’s “Beast of the Month” for November. There are plenty of facts about these friendly thrushes. Our administrator is particularly taking note of how Fieldfares protect their nests by pelting enemies with poo…
Let us know if you see any interesting wildlife in the Gardens!
It’s a lovely autumn day today. The colours in the The Hidden Gardens are changing. Our administrator was out taking some pictures today, as the golds and reds in the Gardens look like the gold of the Gurdwara dome and the red brick of Tramway.
In one of the pictures there’s a visitor to the Gardens, who was chomping on some of the berries. Have you seen him?
