Welcome to the Buteo Wildlife blog, a record of some of the wildlife that we have been seeing and occasional identification articles that will hopefully be useful for those trying to learn about wildlife.

If you enjoy reading this blog, join us on one of our tours - days and weekends looking for wildlife. Visit our website for details: www.buteowildlife.co.uk
Note that tours with clients may not always feature prominently on this blog because we are unlikely to have time for photography when out with clients - and walls of text don't tend to make the most interesting posts. If there is time for a few snatched photos they may not always be of the highest quality - but we'll use them anyway!

To try and keep posts in chronological order they may sometimes be given earlier dates/times than when they are actually posted. Apologies, for this - it's not meant to mislead anyone (and we will try to avoid this happening too often).

House hunting! (29th March 2012).

A short walk in the Strawberry Hill Ponds area of Epping Forest, found a lot of "house hunting" activity among the birds, with quite a few Blue Tits, Great Tits, and Nuthatches actively investigating potential nest holes. Bird song was also very much in evidence with males of many species advertising their claim for a particular territory and/or showing their availability to potential mates.
Grey Squirrels were also, unsurprisingly, very obvious, as was a Brimstone Butterfly which was out in the warm sunshine.
