DEAD SWANS Sadly 4 dead Swans were found at Hosehill recently. BBOWT and DEFRA have been advised due to the current national outbreak of Avian flu strain H5N1. This strain can be contracted by humans so if you come across dead birds don't touch them! Any sightings of multiple dead wild birds should be reported to DEFRA on 03459 335577.

After a good acorn season in 2020 and no jays at all back to our garden jay feeder... a completely different season in 2021. A poor acorn year locally means our Jay feeder is in constant use (3 jays currently). I expect more jays over the next weeks. Record is eight at one time.
