While Martin was out…

Martin was leading an Otter and Red Kite safari today, and I wasn’t feeling well so stayed at home. No sooner was he out of the house than I looked out of the office window and saw a Red Squirrel in our apple tree! Normally they run around a bit and quickly disappear into the trees but this one hung around for half an hour, scrabbling about in the shrubbery, swinging on the bird feeders and checking out our squirrel feeder from every conceivable angle. Plenty of time to find Martin’s camera, check the settings, put in a blank memory card and then fill it with images of the squirrel 🙂 and, just for good measure, I took some decent shots of a Willow Tit as well. When Martin got back he was full of tales of Red Squirrels, Red Kites, kids swimming in one of our favourite otter spots and flocks of Jackdaws heading to roost (that seems to be developing into a bit of an obsession). So, I showed him the photos…
