I was down by the river & this thing popped out for a swim.
Mink are not my favourite beast on site!
Went round to the feeding area some Goldfinch were around:
Our little friend the vole was busy in the sunshine!
A walk down the river path provide many insect sightings.
Peacock Butterflies a plenty:
A lot of these were around too but I haven't time for ID on them unfortunately.
I'm off to Northumbria for a few days - I'm sure Colin will know this immediately?
Pretty much the same as Friday but a little quieter, found this popping up near the river, I think it may turn into a Bluebell.
Don't say the word "weasel" when this is around, wasn't impressed lol.
But our vole takes it in it's stride & was soon back munching.
Some chaffinches were sunbathing ..... but for hours at a time? I suspect this was to force parasites out of their feathers:
Today was very dull & a bit of a let down weather wise but after lurking by the river again, I managed a nice visit from A Grey Wagtail:
& to cheer me up even more - the Jays visited the feeders today.
Well that was my weekend! no more tomorrow I'll not be down, but you can still check it out, see what you can spot?
