6am start and some nice wildlife sightings

Headed out at 6am this morning for a walk, saw quite a few Roe Deer along the way and then I went to the hide for a bit afterwards.

One of the regular Red Squirrels appeared at the hide nicely for over an hour. There was some good sightings off female Great Spotted Woodpecker on the feeders near the hide, 2 Crested Tit visits, male Greenfinch and other small woodland birds.
Usually, I hear two Cuckoos and saw one quite close to the hide a few weeks ago, but this morning I could hear 3 of them in the area. 
A Buzzard appeared which I had good viewings of for around 10mins, which eventually was getting mobbed by a Crow so the bird disappeared over the other side of the forest.

Again, I had my camera on me as per usual and got a few shots from this morning.  First one being of the Robin that visits the hide very regularly. 

A female Chaffinch flew down to the pool for a drink, obviously I couldn't resist getting a quick shot…

Male Chaffinch too…

And lastly when driving back. So many vibrant fields at the moment...

Thanks for looking!Eve
