It’s Been a Quiet Week

The beginning of autumn has proved a very quiet period for me, and the rain hasn’t helped. A small handful of shots from today, just to keep things going.

The first is a rather cute and fluffy pair of jackdaws.

Next is a collared dove, posing (as they do) on a gravestone in the churchyard.

Finally, another shot of a young rat putting its head out to see if the rain had stopped (it hadn’t).

Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.

    That rat looks more like a mouse. How big it was?

    Darko, it’s quite small, but larger than a ‘house’ mouse. It’s a baby, but definitely rat.
