You might know that in Linn Park there are 40 bird boxes! Well Friends of Linn Park have just been supported even further by Travis Perkins (Muirend) allowing us to double that number! The local merchant gave Friends of Linn Park an absolutely amazing deal meaning more wildlife homes around Linn Park and the local area. We cannot thank them enough and we would highly recommend them as their wood is FSC approved and very competitively priced.
A couple of Waxwings were spotted at the junction between Quarry Street/Tuphall Road, Hamilton. They were reported to have been showing reasonably well.
Some of you might know that I take part in Ringing! Different ringing projects run across the year but as Winter approaches, Jack Snipe ringing has started again. This is done at two places, one place called Cathkin Marshes (Scottish Wildlife Trust) and another called Windlaw Marsh.
Hedgehogs need our help more than ever and its up to us how we tackle this problem of depreciation caused by some whose carelessness and thoughtlessness has caused such a negative impact to our hedgehog population. There are around 7 billion people on earth and only 1 million hedgehogs in the UK!
This species had not been seen in the Clyde area since 1869 making this an extremely exciting species to see. After my previous fail of seeing this European Bee-eater a few days ago, This day absolutely made up for it. This has to be one of my birding highlights of all time!
