Winter is over and spring is here, although it is still a little cold and dark, nature is certainly well on its way to preparing for a new season. Spring flowers can be seen everywhere and the sound of birdsongs are loud and clear. It is the time of year that we see lambs and other baby animals starting their new lives. What isn’t as obvious to the eye are the baby birds that will be hatching soon. Many birds have been busy building nests, breeding and laying eggs.
CJ Wildlife is lucky to have the benefit of an ‘eagle eye’ on several different bird species whilst they are going through the most important time in their lives, reproducing. The live webcams run 24 hours a day and let us take a very up close and personal look into the nests of Peregrine Falcons, Little Owls, Tawny Owls, Barn Owls, Storks, Herons, Swifts and Kingfishers.
Last year the cameras drummed up a lot of interest on social media from people who are new to bird watching as well as the dedicated ornithologists. They were also a big hit with parents and children, and this year we hope they will be just as popular. There is always something going on, whether it is a Little Owl’s lunchtime feast, a new egg or some adorable allopreening.
Log on to the CJ Wildlife website to catch all the action, with some of the birds having already laid eggs you won’t want to miss out!
The best time to watch is now until the 1st July when the most activity will take place.
