The Return

Yellowhammer
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.

Weekly Update: Short But Sweet

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.

Weekly Update: Arrivals and Battles

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.

Weekly update: Rainbows and Wrens


This week has been interesting, both weather wise and with sightings at Big Waters. The usual suspects were in the feeding area and on the lake but a few less common visitors also made appearances.

After a weekend in Bamburgh which yielded great photographs of treecreepers and great spotted woodpeckers my hopes of more photographs at Big Waters were high.
