However the Golden Oriole’s at the bottom of the garden are as elusive as ever and although one did present itself the other day, I didn’t have my camera with me.
This Dormouse came to join us for tea the other night. It was scurrying around above our heads in the roof of our hosts’ gazebo when I managed to get this shot of it eating a bit of ham that we’d left it. I was surprised at the size of these creatures – as big as a Hamster.
Dunno what this bird of prey is but there were about 20 of them circling a farmer’s field as he cut back the grass.
Young something or other…
A few pics from the garden...
Hummingbird Hawk Moth
I took the rest of the photos on a visit to La Brenne nature reserve.
Black-Crowned Night Heron (Hopefully)
I'm not sure what this is though. It was hunting above the reedbeds which I was sat above inside a hide. I thought it could be a Marsh Harrier but the one I got the other week at Far Ings didn't have a white head!
