Wildlife Diary 11th Sept

Good morning dear bloggers!

We are greeted with yet another wet morning, but at least it’s nice and calm with no wind. I’m hoping the sun will make an appearance again later today to let Lowes glimmer.
I see from last nights posts that piney made his usual dinning reservation around 9pm and feasted for a good 20 minutes. He/she is certainly doing a good job of fattening up for the winter!
This morning I was privileged enough to see three generations of our great spotted woodpecker feasting on the peanut butter. Grandmother (last years mum), mother (last years daughter) and juvie. Juvie still wanting to be feed by mum! I have seen 2 juveniles this year which takes the family total to 7.
I am now convinced that we have had 3 squirrel kits this year, which should take our total number of individuals to 8, but I have only seen 5 at one time and it’s becoming almost impossible to tell them all apart, but that doesn’t stop me trying!
On the loch this morning, there are a number of whistling wigeon, goosander, goldeneye and great crested grebe, along with the usual mallards and mute swans. So still plenty to see.

Apologies for the ‘cataract’ on cam1 yesterday. I think it was condensation from our lovely weather!

Happy viewing!
