Siskin...

I'm still getting quite a few Siskins in the garden at the moment, including several juvenile birds but star of today was this lovely male hanging out near the pond this morning.

Closest!

Bats are staring to pick up too. The warmer evenings have started to produce more reliable numbers of the commoner species including Pipistrelle, Soprano Pipistrelle, a single Noctule and a flyover Daubenton's - a new species for the garden in Whitestaunton.

Spectograms:


Daubenton's Bat - note the shape and frequency of the
spectogram. 1st record for the garden.
Soprano Pipistrelle on the left (55KHz) compared
to Common Pipistrelle (45KHz) on the right.

Roll on the warmer weather. Can't wait to get more Noctules and the Serotines back in the garden too.
