I hadn't seen this guy for ages.

Lifts my spirits sky high when i do. I will always include images when i come across him. Everyone stops in their tracks when they see this beaut in the park. Last year in the autumn he appeared most afternoons from three p.m. onwards for a spell. It was around threeish today so i'll see how it pans out over the next few days.
I had gone up to the Rising Sun this afternoon with the intention of spotting the Tree Sparrows that were reported by a gentleman who is a reader of this blog. The gentleman in question is called  Joe so HELLO SIR.  I promise the autograph next time we meet. Anyway, gentleman Joe had seen the birds in question in the vicinity of the visitors centre but i had no joy.
I almost forgot. Nice, if very brief sighting of a Weasel carrying a poor Mouse disappearing from one of the waggonways into the undergrowth beneath a fence. How could i be sure it was a Weasel ? Well, the dinner was almost as big as the diner.

Don't forget    double click does the trick.

SAVE OUR FORESTS............a forest is a place where nature takes priority over humans.


  1. It's lovely to see his pictures again and I'm glad that he's still okay. :)

  2. Yea Lesley,
    I always worry when i haven't seen him for a while. I am always asking the regulars and the ranger if he has been sighted. There is a lot of people passing through who are not particularly interested in wildlife and therefore his welfare and these days you don't know what some people will do.

  3. I know John, it's a horrible thought. Let's hope he continues to fare well.
