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 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 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??”

I wonder if she could use that technique on my head so I can get some hairContinue reading “July 19th – Not another animal!!”

July 3rd – Moth or Butterfly?

I have never really known the difference and had assumed that moths only come out when it’s dark to eat light bulbs….. But apparently, whilst this is true for many moths, it isn’t for all. Other key differences are that moths ‘generally’ rest with their wings open, whilst butterflies close their wings, and, butterflies¬†have long,Continue reading “July 3rd – Moth or Butterfly?”

May 23rd – Bee-ing Busy

We’ve all see them, but do we appreciate them. Bees are so important to our agriculture, pollinating our crops. Without bees it is estimated our farmers would spend ¬£1.8 billion to pollinate. Bees also appear in many parts of our culture. From pub signs and town names, from Shakespeare to JK Rowling, from beehive hair-dosContinue reading “May 23rd – Bee-ing Busy”
