October 20th – Shooting

I went hunting for deer today, stalking them and then shooting them, but I used a camera….. No guns for me!!! It was great spending time watching these lovely creatures chill in the autumn sunshine. They spotted me, but I kept still and a reasonable distance, and they seemed to sense I was no threatContinue reading “October 20th – Shooting”

October 17th – A big stick?

The hounds found a hollow in a huge tree to explore on our way yesterday. The hollow was very large, despite the tree still being alive A tree hollow is a cavity in a living tree. Tree holes can be caused when an injury to the tree, such as breakage of a limb, creates an opening through the bark and exposesContinue reading “October 17th – A big stick?”

October 15th – Autumn day….

A fantastic afternoon on the golf course with 3 mates in the autumn sunshine. Well my golf wasn’t fantastic, but the scenery was. The trees are definitely turning colour and leaves falling, making it difficult to find balls that have strayed off the fairway. Because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, leaves stop their food-makingContinue reading “October 15th – Autumn day….”

October 11th – Night-time visitor

A few weeks ago I posted about a hedgehog that came to visit our garden. Well, the following day our friends from Amazon arrived with a luxury apartment for it (slight exaggeration) and Mrs L has been putting out food. It seemed appropriate to capture the creature on film to see whether it was beingContinue reading “October 11th – Night-time visitor”

September 29th – Bath time?

Alfie was a little confused when he saw this little chap having a bath in his outdoors drinking bowl. We were sat out enjoying the sunshine with a coffee, whilst this little Robin provided the entertainment. 10 fun facts about Robins: 1. Robins are very territorial and you’ll usually only see 2 together when they’reContinue reading “September 29th – Bath time?”

September 26th – Walking

We went for a lovely walk in the New Forest today. It is great to get out in the fresh air and take in our beautiful countryside. We were scheduled to visit the Brecon Beacons this weekend, but alas, Covid-19 put an end to that, so we took a little drive to Hampshire. It isContinue reading “September 26th – Walking”

September 18th – Another delivery??

Our friends from Amazon arrived again today, this time with a house for a hedgehog that has been roaming in the garden. We positioned it in the fenced of fruit tree area, to ensure the 4 legged children don’t disturb it, with some hedgehog food, mealworms and water. I thought we’d retired from the B&BContinue reading “September 18th – Another delivery??”

September 14th – visual associations….

Today’s picture is of a spiders web we saw covered in morning dew whilst in the New Forest over the weekend. I weirdly thought of the song “I swallowed a spider to catch the fly” Click the link if you haven’t heard it before, but I warn you, once it’s in your head it’s difficultContinue reading “September 14th – visual associations….”
