I sat under the folly, in the woods above the top lake for over an hour before I noticed some movement in the undergrowth. At first I thought it was a mouse but it was far too large. After a while it paused briefly from it's rummaging long enough for me to make out what it was - a Weasel!
This was the first time I've ever seen one in the flesh so I was grateful to get a few shots before it dissapeared.
Later on I was sat in the hide when a large Mink appeared at the water's edge. Unfortunately it scurried away before I had time to get a photograph.
However there were a few other opportunites whilst I was there...
The Heronries seem to be into full-swing.
I bought a new macro lens the other week and decided to test it out on the Snowdrops growing in the woods. I got the Sigma 105mm for a bargain price off Ebay and am well pleased with the results so far. It will be nice to try it out again when the large insects are around.
Spring Lamb - This was actually taken in Scotland. I spent the long weekend there and although I came away without any decent bird photos the trip was very enjoyable.
I think this maybe a Herring Gull. Taken at Scotland's most southerly point - The Mull of Galloway.
These Pink-Footed Geese were grazing at Wigtown hide before I opened the window and scared them off!
