We all love a Winter Scrub Bash with the knowledge that the work we are doing is going to directly benefit wildlife but it can be a shame if we don’t get to visit in the Summer to take a look at what’s about! So we are even more thankful to Gary Beckett (Conservation Officer) and his Commanding Officer at MOD Bicester who welcomed us back on Saturday 13th July for a Bird and Butterfly Wildlife Walk.
For many people the arrival of Redwings, Waxwings and Fieldfares flying in on cold, starlit nights marks the approach of winter, and their departure a few months later just as surely means that spring has arrived. Now is the perfect time to see these flocks of beautiful migrants.
Matt Sewell ‘the Banksy of the Bird World’ – acclaimed street artist, avid ornithologist, artist-in-residence on Springwatch and worldwide exhibitor – has produced a brilliant addition to his sequence of pocketable mini-masterpieces.
A few words and a short film about ducks and what to feed them…
Ubiquitous and endearing, ducks bring noise and colour – especially males in their rich breeding plumage – to our ponds, lakes and rivers and we are lucky that their preferred habitats provide us with the chance to see a great many species.
