Mammals on my local patch

The mammals on my local patch have been out and about in the sunshine.

After school today we went for a wander down into the woods. The whole wood was alive with birds. Buzzards flying over head,  a couple of jays screeching as they flew off, Long tailed tits hanging upside down, Nuthatches calling out in alarm and squirrels leaping from branch to branch.

At one point a Hare ran out from where I disturbed it resting, shooting off under the brambles. Two marsh tits were calling from the hedgerow and a single Rabbit was eating in the meadow.

I quite like the look of these in black and white.

Over night the Little Acorn trail camera filmed the Badger with the damaged eye and a Badger and Deer together.

    Nice post, Alex! Enjoying your photos and videos. Looks like the badger is doing quite well for itself despite the bad eye.
