What a birding, week Baird's Sandpiper, Buff Breasted Sandpiper and
Pectorals seen in West Cornwall and I missed it. The family, with the
new addition, spent four days in Centre Parks at Longleat. It was my first experience of Centre Parks and we had a great time. The site is located in Longleat
Forest with Plenty of Grey Squirrels ( vermin to some)and the usual
woodland birds such as Coal Tits, Great Tits, Blue Tits, Woodpeckers
and Tawny Owls. The highlight was a Badger family visiting our patio
area in the late evening, with only the double glazing of the patio door
between us and the Badgers we had really close views, at one point
there were five together feeding on peanuts,
Sam and Lisa are keen photographers with a particular interest in birds and wildlife in Cornwall. We have always been interested in photography but the improvements to digital cameras have renewed our interest. We hope you will enjoy viewing our photo blog!
