In the Dene...

Had a lie in til 09:00 this morning, so arrived at Holywell a bit later, heading straight to the Dene's feeding station. More filming was on the cards, with the hope to capture some of the woodland species.

The feeding station was alive with activity on arrival, mainly Blue and Great Tits, but also Coal Tit, Long-Tailed Tit, Nuthatch, Robin, Wren, Blackbird, Dunnock and Chaffinch. A couple of Great Spotted Woodpeckers were disputing territories overhead, and a couple of Grey Wagtails made their way down the Burn.

Great Tit

A couple of mammals visited the feeding station whilst I was there, managed to capture a Bank Vole on film, but here's an image of the the second mammal.

Brown Rat

The GoPro also came out, here's a clip.
