For those of you kind enough to ask ... look who’s feeling better! #gianttortoise #sulcatatortoise #sulcatasofinstagram
Is it me, or just this guy look like he’s just been dragged out of retirement and forced into far too heavy vestments to read the Sunday Sermon?
Big Joe is off his food so, on the basis food that looks nice tastes nice, I have made him cucumber boats with lettuce sails.😋
No prizes, but who can guess what this is?
Green socks, part of Mother Nature’s new Spring Collection. I predict these will be popping up all over the place very soon. #moss #trees #spring #springcollection
Gorgeous hoarfrost this morning, the white feathers of which are supposed to resemble an old man (a Herr) ‘s beard. Looks more like a fat white hairy caterpillar to me but I’m a heathen.
Look who I met on my dog walk - a teeny bank vole. They don’t hibernate so the cold wouldn’t bother him but there was a red kite hovering frightening low above my head. After posing for my photo the vole scampered into the undergrowth, the kite screamed like an angry cat and I punched the air defiantly! I would NOT make a good documentary maker disturbing the course of nature like that! FYI bank voles live in woodland, hedgerows, parks and gardens. They eat fruit, nuts and small insects, but are particularly keen on hazelnuts and blackberries. They live in shallow burrows, but may make grassy, round nests above ground if the soil is unsuitable for digging. I couldn’t find one example of a children’s story featuring a bank vole, though some editions of Wind In The Willows have humiliated poor Ratty by making him a bank vole. #vole #nature #naturelovers #braywicknaturereserve #windinthewillows
“Signs of autumn - the reddening leaf, the chill in the early-morning air, the misty evenings. The summer has been splendid but it has lasted long enough. This morning I welcomed the chill in the air and viewed the falling leaves with cheerfulness.” ~A.A.Milne #funghi #autumn #walks
Morning! (No filters I promise!) #sunrise #thames #thamesriver
