Also, at 9pm Thursdays Robson Green has a three part series about walking Hadrian's Wall. Next Thursday is the final part which will see him doing the Cumbrian section which includes a visit to the Bird of Prey Centre at Thurstonfield.

Quite a bit of snow over the weekend and good to get out across the fields. For once, the hares were easy to see.

Some more of the hares starting to go a bit mad. Also a Yellowhammer, Corn Bunting and Great Spotted Woodpecker. Bit of light in dark times.

Can't remember last time I saw a wild yellowhammer, stunning bird with a famous call!

Yes, it is a lovely song, Zebby, isn't it?
I'm not sure they are doing quite so well these days but I do see them quite often in the Hawthorn hedges on the field edges. Was a bit easier to spot the other day as it stood out so well in the snow.
The Corn Bunting is a bird I hardly ever see. Very common growing up in the fields but I probably only see a handful each year now.

I recorded it Tuesday 2100 BBC 4. It'll be on iPlayer I'd have thought. Look out for his first two. Scawfell and Blencathra

Saw my first Swallow of the year at the weekend. Always brings a smile to my face and helps me feel hopeful for the year ahead. Any arrived in Cumbria yet?

Tried to download a photo and failed.:(
Found a dead weasel in the garden this morning.
First time I've ever been close to one. Normally just catch a flashing glimpse.
I shouldn't really like them as they are so destructive but it was actually rather a beautiful thing.
Not sure what killed it. Had a couple of very small puncture wounds. We have sparrowhawks here but unless I disturbed it they would have made a right mess of it.

Those photos look both beautiful and sad,I've never seen a weasel or stoat or anything like that,do you live in an urban area?
Yes, I think that's right, Chalky. Rather sad and beautiful.
Have just moved to the countryside from the town.
I've only ever seen them in rural areas when I was growing up and a few in the Lakes scurrying across paths or tracks through woods but never in a town. Normally I've just seen a blur and only realised what they are once they've gone!

I've just looked back at some of your other photos on here and it's obvious that you must live in a rural area,foxes and rats are all you see around here where I live,the photo of the woodpecker is especially good and you are lucky to have all of that nature on your doorstep but you will know that already going by your photos,thanks for sharing them
No problem, Chalky. I'm glad you like them.
