I've spent the vast majority of today building my "Hedgehog Hilton" and have to admit that I'm rather pleased with the outcome of my labours. Okay, it wouldn't win any prizes in a joinery competition, but I'm hopeful that the garden Hedgehogs won't be so judgemental? Scrap pallet wood and based upon a design shown on the Wildlife Trusts website, it's now positioned at the far end of the garden, just beyond the feeding station.
I had the camera kit to hand whilst engaged in this mammoth building project and managed to grab a series of images when a male (local?) Sparrowhawk drifted over the garden. Yesterday I'd grabbed a nice image of one, of three, Goldfinch at the feeders and carried on playing about with the lenses and captured a rather pleasing shot of a hoverfly - sp.
Saddest of all, I even pointed the lens in the direction of a flower! What has my life become?
58 - Pied Wagtail - a bird flew through my binocular view as I was watching a migrating Common Buzzard yesterday.
59 - Reed Warbler - a singing male! Ridiculous.
