One of the advantages of still being in lockdown is time. Yes , a lot more time to fill given the limitations of movement and with the skill full dodging of domestic duties ( much to the annoyance of my long suffering wife ) so after a damp to wet slow wildlife Wednesday I have managed to slip a sneaky Bonus Thursday into my hectic schedule.
The location hasn’t changed , I’m still confined to my temporary lockdown hide , and the view is pretty much the same. Even the weather seems a little repetitive, damp and overcast , rain is on its way. This is where I would normally say all the usual suspects are here , but it’s very very quiet in the garden. Still every cloud has a silver lining as they say , so I’ve got time to clear up some old posts , edit a few posts add a few new images.
You may have noticed a new page , under the Wildlife menu. The Grey Squirrel. This is part of my 2020 big five project. When I say big five, it looks like it’s going to be more like a big seven or maybe eight , I’m not going to get all hot and bothered by the number . The aim of the exercise is to get to know and celebrate my local patch wildlife. Whenever I travel, celebrating and appreciating the local wildlife is an important part of my holiday.
Here’s a few images from Bonus Thursday……….
