It has been a while since I participated in Good Fences hosted by Theresa so here are a few different fences that I have strolled past recently and being used as perching places by a number of our resident breeding birds.
Scanning the fence boundaries of the horse paddocks in Horton Country Park I noticed that one post was taller than all the others and on closer inspection it was being used by one of the resident Little Owls enjoying a brief spell of winter sunshine. The image quality is not brilliant as I had to heavily crop the original as this small Owl was a long way away and very well camouflaged against the the hedgerow!
The next species, a Kestrel at Tices Meadows was far more obvious as it used a tall post to survey its surroundings before flying off to hunt for a meal.
During a visit to Warnham L.N.R. this week a male Bullfinch perched very briefly on a woven hazel fence.
