Wildlife in my local patch

Hampshire UK

First Cuckoo, bluebells and goshawk

Heard my first cuckoo for this year on Saturday whilst on a bike ride. Its great to hear it again.

The bluebells in the wood are looking (and smelling) amazing now. I’ve been trying out an experiment with my trail camera and the bluebells. More to come later.


Also saw the goshawk again yesterday. This time it was riding a thermal over the woods opposite our house with some buzzards which was good for size comparison.  I tried to get the camera on it but it was too far away and too high up.
