Grey Wagtail

A short sequence of a very pretty little bird, and one that is often hard to spot. I was lucky enough to see a pair of these grey wagtails foraging under the trees at the edge of Falmer Pond.

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).
