View the live streams
We have a number of nest boxes and feeding stations for a variety of species and will live stream them when they are occupied or used. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates. Running the live streams requires expensive equipment and data connectivity and we have exciting plans to stream live video from the Calf and our reserves. If you would like to sponsor any of our live streams please email email@example.com
Enjoy the show!
The starlings and swallows have fledged but the feeding station is still regularly visited by a wide range of garden birds including woodpeckers.
A pair of starlings decided to nest in our swift box and we were lucky enough to catch the courting which included this nearly five minute long beatboxing session from the male. Can you spot all the different bird species that he mimics? We just love the way she just yawns indifferently at the end. However, they did go on to successfully fledge some chicks. Definitely 'sound on' for this one!
Our feeding station is visited by a large range of garden birds including house sparrows, blue tits, great tits, coal tits, chaffinches, goldfinches, greenfinches, and even a pair of great spotted woodpeckers. This year they successfully raised at least one chick, seen here with the large red cap (adult males have a smaller red patch at the back of the head) being fed by mum (no red markings on the head at all) from the peanut feeder.
