Bits & Bobs

Violet Sabrewing hummingbird - one of the species in Chris Packham's Secrets of a Living Planet

Better weather today and a Willow Tit put in an appearance in the garden on the fat ball feeder.  The Great Spotted Woodpecker family also add to the entertainment. Did you all catch Chris Packham's new series Secrets of a Living Planet on relationships between species.  The first one was on rain forests and some incredible stuff on the survival of the Brazil nut tree, an orchid, a bee and a tiny rodent called an Agouti.  Also some great shots of rain forest birds. Check it out.

Clarke's Nutcracker - one of the species we will be seeing later this week.

Tomorrow afternoon we head off to Gatwick to fly off to Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Thursday morning.  We are visiting our son Jeremy who lives there with his family.  We will have three weeks to catch up with our growing grandchildren and watch wildlife in the Rocky Mountains and the prairies of Southern Alberta.  This will be our second visit so we will be looking to see some new areas and hopefully a few new birds.
