The first woodpecker of 2020 was heard today, wed 5th February, on Cherry Orchard Nature Reserve. It’s not unusual to hear the tapping of these birds at this time of year.
A huge “flight” or a “gulp”of Swallows amassed over the Cherry Orchard Nature Reserve yesterday, by far the most Swallows spotted over the nature reserve EVER.
This would be the second sighting of a Muntjac deer on the CONR, the first being three years ago. The one spotted this time was actually near to the road by the small model railway site.
The return of the swallows were noted on 13 May. For the last few years the swallows have not been as numerious as in previous years, however let’s hope that this year they will gain in numbers.
