    My first red squirrel, on the edge of the village. Went to check a couple of grey squirrel traps and there was a red on the ground about 30m away.
    Taken me 5 years to see one in the flesh!

    A volery (no idea why this collective noun) of pied wagtails. About 20 of them flitting about a car park in Macclesfield.

    Then two hedgehogs pootling about within about 200 yards of each other by the side of the road.

    A shrew fighting off my dog near the top of Fairfield yesterday. I hope it wasn't too injured in the fracas - there's always a fine line when you should put something out of its misery and leave it to recover.
