A Swimming Rat, a red Robin and a Collared Dove

Just another day at Falmer Pond, which is now filled to overflowing following the recent heavy rains. The rats are having to find other ways of getting around now their dry runs are flooded, but water isn’t a barrier to a tenacious rodent. They simply get down to swimming.

Meanwhile an altogether more colourful inhabitant, a robin, has found a nice dry perch.

Finally, this is close to a shot I’ve been after for a long time… a decent image of a collared dove in flight.

    Beautiful photo of a robin!!! Also, I like how the feathers bend on that collar dove’s wings
