Wildlife highlights from the last few days

There have been a few interesting wildlife sightings from the last few days.

On Wednesday (7th Jan), a wetland in the Wansbeck catchment produced 20 Snipe and a lone Meadow pipit.

On the same day a Stoat in ermine crossed the road at Rothley East Farm.  There were also three Lesser redpolls in woodland close by.

A Barn owl was calling in Glanton last night (8th Jan) and a Long-eared owl flew south over the road at Alnwick Moor.

The new leaves of Lesser celandine and Broad-leaved dock are also starting to appear in grassland and Great tits have started singing.
