Canada Goose DATZ was by the Main Lake at Saltholme today, likely to have been ringed at Windermere Lake, Cumbria.

Cheers,

Regular visitors to the reserve will be aware of a newly created viewpoint overlooking a regular roosting location for our wintering long-eared owl. At the same time of installing the viewpoint  a couple of barriers were created to provide a refuge area for the roosting birds.

It was very disappointing to discover this morning that some visitors had forced their way through a bramble patch creating a trail directly to the roosting spot. Needless to say there were no owls visible from the viewpoint today. In addition to last years post above can I please ask visitors to remember to put the birds' interests first!

Thank you for your cooperation,

Spotted a couple of darvic ringed canada geese from Paddy's Pool Bridge during today's WeBS Count. Unable to read the codes given distance and strong breeze however likely to have originated from the following scheme in Cumbria : http://www.cr-birding.org/node/2247

Interestingly I've come across a bird from this scheme in the past whilst working at RSPB Ynys-hir in Mid Wales, the goose observed there was ringed at Windermere: https://www.rspb.org.uk/community/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-blogs-components-weblogfiles/00-00-01-22-87/IMAG0616.jpg

Good Morning,

The Phil Stead Hide will be closed all day whilst we undertake essential habitat management works. Further details can be found in Dean's latest blog: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/placestovisit/saltholme/b/saltholme-blog/archive/2017/10/23/it-39-s-organic-week.aspx

Recently a few images have appeared online of the Haverton long-eared owl adopting an erect, slender stance with vertical ear tufts, a posture adopted by an alert bird as a result of disturbance whilst at its day roost. Can we please refer people to the Voluntary Guide for Wildlife Photographers http://www.teesmouthbc.com/Main/VolGuide.aspx which is listed on the Teesmouth Bird Club Website. Although tailored for photographers the text still carries relevance for the general wildlife enthusiast out in the field.
 
The long-eared owl has been admired by hundreds of people so far this winter, many observing the species for the first time. With the cooperation of visitors this bird, one of our winter highlights, could be enjoyed by hundreds more.
When possible the long-eared owl roost is manned by our Volunteer Saltholme Guides, please ask at reception to see if a guide is on owl duty on the day of your visit.

Many thanks,
The Saltholme Team

Hello,

On Thursday 10th November the Estate Team will be removing vegetation from around outflow pipes on Bottom Tank, this will result in some disturbance if trying to view wildlife from the Phil Stead Hide. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks,

Hello,

We will be undertaking re-profiling works in front of the Phil Stead Hide on Monday 12th September. We are aiming to improve the habitat in front of the hide, this should also enhance viewing opportunities.

The hide will be closed for the day but will open again as normal on Tuesday.

Thanks,

Saltholme Team

Good morning,

The Estate Team will be out re-profiling land around the Saltholme Pools hide tomorrow (07/04/2016) in order to improve views of wildlife utilizing the waters edge. This will result in some disturbance in front of the hide.

The Quest to rolex replica One of the first visionaries to predict test-tube meat, you'll be surprised to learn, was Winston Churchill. Back in 1931, before he became Prime Minister, rolex replica wrote a magazine article about rolex replica progress in which he predicted that by 1981, "we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium" [replica watches uk]. He was a little off on the time frame, obviously. It wasn't until 2001 that a bioengineer named Morris Benjaminson rolex replica and colleagues at New York's Touro College took chunks of fresh muscle tissue from a goldfish and immersed them in a vat of swiss replica watches liquid of fetal bovine serum. By doing that, the researchers found they could cause the still-living muscle cells to divide and produce more muscle cells; they were able to add about 14 percent worth of hublot replica flesh on the chunks. Benjaminson actually tried frying the fake fish in olive oil flavored with lemon, garlic and pepper and showed the result to colleagues, but nobody got up the nerve to actually try a bite [cartier replica].
