It almost felt like winter had finished , until this week , with temperatures down in single figures. but despite this some nests already have young ready to fledge , these Thrush youngsters won’t be in the nest much longer , i’m really surprised they’ve made it this far as the parents chose to nest on the side of a lane in the bank in full view under some tin sheet.
Other birds in the garden now are also starting to nest , and are regular visitors to the feeders ,
I still can’t find where the Nut hatch is nesting though.
While the snow we had recently was fun , getting around was a pain , and by the 4th day i was glad to see the back of it . but it was nice to get out and try some shots with more movement in them and the snow helped by reflecting the available light.
The latest idea i had was to try wide angle on the visiting foxes in the garden , as i suspected just the shutter noise was enough to send her packing , only to reappear later that evening , but i did manage to capture one or two photo’s before she legged it.
Wide angle lens about 1.5 meters away .
the shutter noise spooked her .
For a few months now i’ve been putting out food for the fox’s resulting in a vixen coming in around the same time each evening and a male now and again.
The vixen now has cubs to feed and will grab food and disappear for a while , returning later to scrounge any scraps left behind , click the link to my website to see all the photo’s.

Not Wildlife this time but a pair of whippets racing after a lure , well i was out and there was nothing about so i had to point the camera at something !
By the way , the red things the lure .
