Our Delightful LOVELY Understated LITTLE Treecreeper.
Only British songbird with long down curved bill.
Scaling climbing trees and underside of branches for insects.
Spiralling around tree trunks always proceeding upwards -
“Quickly flying back to base of next tree to repeat the whole process.”
Song very highly distinctive reminiscent of Blue tit with trisyllabic ending.
Regular high thin calls.
Help Treecreepers: Keep old trees with cracks and hollows to roost -
They will find hidden pests insects spiders their tree bark food.
Nest in tree crevices. Our lovely tiny – Treecreeper – Was?
Their ‘Recent’ – Present Day Numbers? –
‘We’ Just Dont Know! Who does…?
Few Cat Owners Care that the SMALL BIRD Taken by their cat translates into an Immense NUMBER When Multiplied by the National CAT Population of 14 million – (2009). LONDON ALONE HAS 1.5 MILLION – CATS.
AGE SPAN OF Cats IN THE LAST ’40’ YEARS HAS RISEN FROM 8 to 22++ YEARS. Cats KILL 45% OF SONGBIRDS…
Cats SPEED ’30-40′ MILES PER HOUR – SAME AS A RACEHORSE, OR DEER, OR BEAR, OR A – ‘WHITE RHINO…!’
“Killing 100 Million Garden Birds AND Small Mammals – EVERY SINGLE YEAR. THAT ‘IS’ WITHOUT WILD CAT NUMBERS !”
Elbert Hubbard – ‘Genius may have its limits but stupidity is not thus capped…’
‘It’s illegal in Britain to knowingly disturb nesting birds so its best to keep away from nests in the breeding season.’ Even if the adult in not sitting do not attempt a close look as your presence may well alert predators to the existence of the nest.
“There is a real risk that the Songbird will desert the nest if you disturb it and if there are young in the nest on the point of fledgling. There’s a greater risk they may flee which could endanger their survival.”
Always only watch a nest – only if you have to! From a safe distance with binoculars and keep its location a secret from others. Not everyone sadly has the best interests of wild birds at heart. Tragically for our decimated Songbirds – Egg collectors are still active.
Species Becoming Extinct 1,000 times Natural rate. World Population 2billion 1960: – 6.8billion 2010: – 10.9billion by 2050! – Heaven or Hell on Earth.
