A bit of garden wildlife

Postby 18 Wheeler » 01 Aug 2014, 10:02

Like many shooters I'm also a wildlife lover, and it's great when you find something interesting on your doorstep, or in this case garden. Just a couple from the last week.

A longterm resident in the 18 Wheeler garden, but not particularly easy to get close and photograph, say hello to one of "my" Bank Voles...

...and a rarity around here, a nice big rabbit.

Before I get burned, yes I do know it is a Hare. :lol:

The Hedgehogs have bred and each evening there's a couple of very small hoglets hoovering up bugs, had a tiny Wood Mouse jump into my nut sack :o whilst filling up the bird feeders last week.

Plenty of birdlife, but I'll confine this post to the mammals.

Anyone else get anything else interesting?

Kenny I knew you'd snigger at that. Tut tut :lol:

More Mice? Here's another Wood Mouse that jumped into a plastic scoop being used to fill the feeders. Nearly fully grown this one, and he's got attitude.

Wot you lookin at!

Considering what you have Airwolf1, he is damned lucky all you had was a camera! Would have thought your .25 springer would have put paid to that! :lol:
