Did you survive the egg hunts and chocolate comas of yesterday? I just about did. Hope you’ve all had the weekend you deserved, whatever you got up to 🐣

My last few posts have been large birds of prey so now let’s bring it down in size to this gorgeous little singing wren! As the sun was rising in the misty morning this little bird landed in front of me and put on a great show. I then spotted another 1 later on building a nest 🙂
Video feature: play with sound on!

I promised you guys an #easter treat so here it is, a video of the #skylark I was photographing the other day, accompanied by the sound of its mate singing in the background! If you listen very closely you can hear the cry of a #buzzard right at the end!

I could just lay here all day  in my hammock, listening to the birds and the ponds. (I am also impressed I managed a whole video with planes going overhead)

Please excuse the poopy chair. This little one kept trying to join our family lunch in the garden but was a bit too shy. Once everyone had gone he felt a little braver.

Today we celebrate the world’s beautiful curlew species.  Happy #WorldCurlewDay.

#Did you know? 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland is responsible for nearly 15% of the global population of Eurasian Curlew (N.arquata). The Eurasian curlew’s species name refers to the shape of its bill, as arquata is the Latin word for the archery bow.  The end of a curlew’s bill is sensitive and acts like tweezers which enables it to feel around in the mud for prey.

The #Gaelic name is guilbneach which seems to be derived from it’s call.  Anyone heard their call?  The Scots word is Whaup !  The beginning of the curlew call could be described as a rising Whaup , whaup  whaup  before the classic trilling.

Across Scotland and globally, there are excellent partnerships in place to deliver for curlew. 😀 © Lorne Gill/SNH
Happy Easter all! Enjoy this mildly annoyed chaffinch, and have a good day

Un oiseau bien d'ici ! Les mésanges à longue queue ne s'observent plus par grands groupes, comme en hiver. Elles se déplacent par deux, en couple et leurs gazouillis trahissent leur discrète présence.

A dark little fact about #MallardDucks that might surprise some people... It’s not terribly common to see a duck in a tree; but this poor girl is hiding. 
This is mating season.

At first, it seems she’s just enjoying some seasonal fun with her partner, although if you look closely you can see he’s handling her roughly, pulling feathers from her crown. The pair are quite quickly surrounded by rival Drakes, all of them pecking at the female and vying for dominance. This particular female was pursued back and forth across a road several times by as many as six males. 
Eventually a ‘winner’ emerges and takes his reward. It’s basically gang-rape, and it’s brutal, and fairly unsettling to watch...
