Pond Life

I had a new visitor from blogland called moosh, who has recently posted a photo of a Tree Frog. Sadly we don't get Tree Frogs round these parts so you'll have to make do with this chap who was hanging around our garden pond.

Whilst away at the weekend I saw a Lesser Black Backed Gull, a Red Breasted Merganser, a Little Owl and a Wheatear, taking the years total to 95. The bird above is a Snipe conveniently posing on a dry stone wall near Muker.

Wierd Weddings

This is me outside the Tan Hill Pub, Britain's highest pub. Whilst in the pub, enjoying a pint, we witnessed a couple getting married, they had 2 lambs as bridesmaids, this was one of them. It takes all sorts.

I took a photo of a Shelduck, which I have already seen this year, but unbeknown to me at the time, a Housemartin sneaked into the picture (top right) and became bird number 91 for the year.

It's been a while since I shared music with you, so here goes.

Lonesome Swan

Actually, not lonesome at all, but I couldn't resist the Glasvegas link. Spotted this fella at Filey Dams on Saturday.

You might have to look closely to see it, but it's definitely a fox, spotted yesterday at Filey Dams. Click on the photo for a better view.

Mixed Feelings

We had a fox in the garden this morning, which was great to see, however it was trying to get into the tortoises house, which is not so good. The tortoise, in case you were wondering, was none the worse for his ordeal, I guess he just went into his house within his house. Apologies to those of you who would've rather seen a photo of a fox.

Bird update

Great news on the bird front, we had a Greater Spotted Woodpecker on our home made fat feeders in the garden this morning. Let's hope he comes back for more. Alos saw my first Swift of the year yesterday taking the years total to 90.
