After months not visiting the hides at Big Waters for various reasons I finally got myself back into gear and spent a few hours relaxing in the spring sunshine. It was great to return and see a few of the regulars (both wildlife and people) and for the life of me I cant work out why I hadn't been for so long.
While my visits were relatively short and sweet I did see some of my favourite birds, the chiffchaff, wren and my first yellowhammer.
The last few weeks has seen my business take up huge amounts of my time. Unfortunately this has meant I have not managed to visit Big Waters as much as I would like, but last week I managed to get a few hours to visit and see what had changed in the time I was away.
The unseasonably warm weather continues with temperatures reaching record levels for the end of October.
Although workload has meant I have not spent as much time at Big Waters as I would like there were a few nice sightings and a few winter visitors arriving and even a little unusual behavior from the residents.
