    Saw a Sea Eagle get mobbed by a bunch of hooded crows above my garden. Given the size of the eagle they were very brave.

    A pair of Oystercatchers at the edge of the 9th green. I had to Google to see what they were.

    Hedgehog
    Grey squirrels
    Red kite
    And some local pond life.

    Hedgehog and red kite. We don't get many red kites round our way.
    No longer "resting"

    I've been hunting a grasshopper round the back garden for about a week and a half... This afternoon realised its actually the high-frequency cat deterrer gizmo, which my ears can somehow still pick up.

    There is a breeding program at Harewood House,only about 5 or 6 mile from the course.

    They are good for golfers because they stop the crowd pecking the greens for worms.

    Great to see soreing the skies.

    I had words with a female hornet that was buzzing about the shed and thinking of setting up home there, she can find somewhere else.
    Ring-a-ring-o-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tishoo! a-tishoo! we all fall down.

    There is a glimmer of hope this year that the decline in hedgehog numbers will be slowed down thanks to the Covid - 19 lockdown which brought about a decline in vehicles on the road and therefore more Hedgehogs made it across the the road and now there is hopes that it will be a record year for Hoglets

    Something else to thank an unkown virus for

    Large fox running across the main road between Loughborough and Quorn, seen on my bike ride this morning.

    [Q. Why did the fox cross the road?
    A. To catch the chicken that had crossed the road before it.

    Kayaked out to a seal colony nearby to escape the awful midges last night. 50 orcso seals bobbing around me close enough to touch. Loads of Oystercatchers and Arctic terns mobbing me as they nest on the island. Went for a swim in the loch afterwards and freaked out when something touched my leg. Thought it was a seal coming to drag me into its watery lair, turned out to be seaweed. Anyway. I shat myself and got out post haste.
