    Sounds to me possibly a cock pheasant, perhaps squaring up to a rival?

    Cormorant at Nanpantan reservoir, keeping an eye on all the anglers. Presumably if any angler had taken out a fish and not put it back, he would have had to contend with the sharp end of a beak.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Sunshine has brought out dozens of skylarks on the hill, lovely to see and here. Hundreds and hundreds of frogs in all the peat bogs - getting jiggy!
    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.

    First genuinely interesting thing "captured" on my wildlife camera. A badger in some local woods. I have mixed feelings:
    It's really nice to see a badger, but there are lots of gamekeepers round here, and I don't want it to be killed
    But...
    I don't want it eating my chickens.

    Thankfully there are so many pheasants about as a distraction at the moment. We'll just have to remember to shut the coop up every night.

    Saw a Little Owl today whilst out running. Only the second one I've ever seen.

    Nice spot.

    Up until 2/3 years ago, every year around this time, I would regularly see one atop one of the telegraph poles that line one of the lanes out of the village.

    They are a lovely sight but unfortunately one that is getting rare.

    Hare running across a field; but it was being quite sensible, because it is not March yet.

    Newts appearing in the local pond. They are small and I assume smooth. Need to be careful as last year the local Kingfisher was gobbling them down. No Frogspawn yet.
