Wildlife

Recommended Posts

Recently, Dad has found himself back amongst nature...the sweet song of various finchies and titties; the busy toothypegs of red squirrels; the tap-tap-taparoo of woodpeckers, the graceful fence-hopping deer...every day is akin to a real life Disney film (Bambi or one of the others with animals in).

The other day, I saw a blackbird, 2 squirrels a smattering of wee birdies and the woodpecker all fucking hanging out together at my Dad-made feeding area...I was greeting a bitty at the wonder of it all truth be told. 

 

Anyhow - thought it'd be a terrific topic for us to discuss - feeding advice, photos of rare sightings etc etc...summat to do in the summer months / until the Dons get good again ✌️

 

Heres one of yon squirrels - I've nicknamed him, 'Squirrely' 🙌

We get a family of woodpeckers occasionally. Very timid they are and fly off at the slightest moment.

Aye - cagey wee bastard our resident woodpecker, 'Woody'... getting a bitty more brazen as time goes on but - he's made the hung fatballs his own 😎

And no, no yet - be next year afore USA: phase 2 is underway.

Lots of hare, rabbits, and deer out where I live.See the odd stoat kicking about.The dog always wants to go have a look, but the stoat would take her face off before she knew it.

Lots of barn owls too.

I’ve never clocked a red squirrel in Scotland. You know what I saw in March , near Canterbury, a fucking white squirrel. Only 50 in the uk.

😄😄. I would rename what we currently refer to as Eastern and Western Brown Snakes, and, in particular, the Black Mamba, which is not actually black, in order to make brown people feel better about things.

Aye but all the black things are deadly and a white squirrel isn’t. It’s racism!

😆😆.

A very valid point, Brian min. Aye, come to think of it there is also the black widow spider but the old great white shark (although mainly a bluish-grey hue) likes a human meal, so maybe that evens things out.
