Barnes Lane and Scatterdells Wood
This morning I went out to get some footage of the local wildlife. My main aim was to film the woodland and Farmland surrounding Scatterdells Wood as well as the breeding species. I managed to film 1 of the 4 Yellowhammer along the road, 1 Whitethroat (withmore singing from cover), 1 Kestrel also flew over the wood and I managed to film the a Great Spotted Woodpecker nest (with both adults attending the nest, they both used the tactic of both approaching the nest whilst one flew of again and the other provided the food in order to create the distraction). A Green Woodpecker and Nuthatches were heard and 1 Red Kite circled low over the horse fields along Chipperfield Road followed by 1 Buzzard over the A41.
