Lots of fun has been had this past few weeks... more recently it's been the local fox cubs that have taken my attention.... I've never seen fox cubs up close like this ever ... literally a few meters away when I've taken the photos. What has amazed me is that they haven't rushed away when they've seen me - they've almost been inquisitive I think :-) If other work wasn't keeping me so busy I'd be tempted to camp out at the side of the field all day and watch them coming and going from the den! This photo was one of the most recent - it was a really windy evening but still warm in the sun.... this little chap was enjoying the last rays ... how cute! They are v. amusing to watch... here a area a few of my photos...
Hope you've enjoyed these... this wasn't the only excitement - a friend Richard came and has put up a Barn Owl box in our woodland.... if you click on the link you can see it in use (where it was previously) complete with Owl! Please take a look at Richard's blog.
The box has been put with easy access for the birds to fly in -
Here are a couple more close up views of it... all we need now are two birds to make a home here so watch this space!
I found an amazing Emperor Hawk Moth the other day... which appeared to have hatched from the compost in our window boxes!!
I also discovered this caterpillar and wonder if some clever person reading this can tell me what it is?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend... and thanks for visiting my blog.
