Birds at Mayfield

In response to a suggestion at the 2014 open meeting, we have added a “Birds at Mayfield” photographs page to the web site.  They are a bit camera shy, but one of our local robins posed happily for Mike in the attached photo while we were trimming brambles and nettles behind the eastern woodland beside the meadow.

The many magpies on the site tend to be a bit more camera shy than our friendly robin, but we did manage to catch this one in October 2014.  Some later shots are taken in an adjacent garden.

It’s easier to catch nests sometimes, but they too are often well hidden! We’re not sure who occupied this one though.
