Lovely sunny day today, and the local inhabitants at Falmer Pond were in one of their collectively more cooperative moods. Plenty of subjects to choose from, including the title subject (but I’ll reserve that for the end).
First up is something of a re-visit to yesterday’s post. Another dunnock, but this time in decent light against a clean background.
The great tits are busy too. This one is on a coconut ‘fat’ feeder at the front of St Laurence Church, adjacent to the pond.

But the star of the day… this little rodent. The water levels are gradually going down at the pond which has brought some of the summer rat runs back into use. This one is close to one of the more popular points for throwing bread to the ducks and gulls. A few crumbs had landed on top of the boulder. The rat was considering its options…
