A damning parliamentary report has highlighted the failure to monitor, regulate and invest in the cleanliness of our rivers – and called for change. WWT is strongly supportive of the report, released by the Environment Audit Committee, and agrees that more investment is needed in the sort of nature-based solutions recommended by the committee. Wetlands are particularly […]

Nature lovers across the South Pennines are being asked to support efforts to stop a rare and secretive songbird disappearing from the area’s uplands. Twite, a species known locally as the Pennine finch, were once a common sight on moorland throughout the region. But a lack of food and suitable nesting sites, coupled with the impact of moorland fires, are believed to be behind a sharp […]

Do you need a way to keep squirrels out of your feeders? Maybe you’ve spent time and money finding bird feeders that claim to keep squirrels out, but these tenacious little mammals have found a way into each one. Or, you might have a collection of feeders you love already, but they aren’t squirrel-proof. Either way, your bird feeder pole could be the answer you’ve […] The post The 2 Best SQUIRREL-PROOF Bird Feeder Poles! (2022) appeared first on Bird Watching HQ.

I think your bird feeder pole is just as important as your bird feeders! It’s not particularly exciting will almost never be the center of attention, but it’s the backbone of your feeding station. Your bird feeding pole sits there every day doing its job, holding up your feeders. But, like your health or a functioning toilet, you don’t appreciate your bird feeder pole […] The post 7 Things to Consider When Buying a Bird Feeder Pole! appeared first on Bird Watching HQ.

Your bird feeder pole is the true unsung hero in your backyard. It’s not glamorous, or exciting. It will never be the center of attention (even though it’s located at the center of your backyard feeding station.) But your bird feeder pole system could be the most important investment you make in your bird feeding hobby! Remember that your bird feeders are only as […] The post The 8 BEST Bird Feeder Poles!

The weather has changed a lot last this week. There have been days with strong northerly winds, temperatures have been going up and down and we have even had some rain. The net result of this is that all paths and roads where the snow has been pressed down have now turned into ice rinks and you risk your life or at least the odd bone or two if you venture off gritted paths. Last Saturday I avoided these perils by being lucky enough to accompany Halvard out on his boat although there was ice on the fjord in places which we had to sail through. It was a lovely windless but cold day and we enjoyed a magnificent sunrise. I had hopes of seeing King Eider or at a minimum getting my first Shag of the year but had to be content with various good wintering birds such as Purple Sandpiper, Red-throated Diver, Long-tailed Duck, Twite and Rock Pipit. Other than this I can jut report how few birds there are this winter and I have even contemplated going to the dump to look for gulls but have so far remained strong. My smelly stream seems to have lost its appeal for snipe with just a single Jack noted this week. Whether this is due to milder weather or the birds having moved on will perhaps only be clear when we have the next snow fall and other sites become unavailable. I visited the Water Rails at Østensjøvannet today and saw three birds. Interestingly two fed closely together but the third bird (an adult) was not tolerated at all by one of the other two (a 1st winter) which repeatedly chased it away and eventually caused it to fly off to another area. A nice way to start the day. 08:48 on Saturday as we headed out onto the fjord male Long-tailed Duck (havelle) - we usually only see young birds so this was a treat Purple Sandpipers (fjæreplytt) Maridalen has been very disappointing and this Great Grey Shrike (varsler) was the clear stand out bird a new sign has been put up encouraging photographers to show restraint in their attempts to get an even better picture of the Water Rail than they have from before. It features one of my pictures 😀 the two friendly Water Rails (vannrikse) and the lone and bullied bird. Grey chin should make this an adult the aggresive bird of the pair same bird - white chin should make it a 1st winter Jack Snipe (kvartbekkasin)

Staten må sikre verdifulle naturområder på Lista! Disse trues ved at Farsund kommune ønsker å bruke områdene til industri og næring gjennom å etablere Lista Energy Park. Naturverdiene er av en slik karakter at de må bevares for ettertiden. BirdLife Norge og Naturvernforbundet ber ødeleggelsene av våtmark stanse.
