Badger really did not want to engage with the photographer today!
From this mornings walk…he was a very busy squirrel!
Occasionally we get the odd Greylag Goose paying a visit to Doctors Pond and this chap was a fine specimen, strutting his stuff amongst the squabbling ducks and Canada Geese. Sad to report that we are down to 4 ducklings now from the original 7.
I have no idea what he had done…perhaps it was something to do with the tree in the background 😉
This was one frustrated goose!
It was all happening down at Doctors Pond this evening…with the first batch of ducklings having arrived not long ago. Whilst it took a while I can report that this youngster worked out how to get out of the pond and rejoin mother…after a few attempts of attempting to leap out of the pond the duckling finally noticed the ramp leading out of the water next to him!
This bullock kept a very close eye(s) on me as I walked pat this morning…
Here’s Badger in front of a canvas of Badger I got Debbie for her birthday. He’s delighted to be subjected to more photography…
I wasn’t expecting the quite thick mist that greeted me this morning, but it was a mild morning and spring certainly feels like it’s in the air…the oil seed rape is already flowering and there is an abundance of blossom around Great Dunmow at the moment…
I popped out to Doctors Pond this evening just as the sun was setting and photographed a small selection of the waterfowl that lives there.
