A wild Tulip.....
Thanks to Susan of Loire Valley Nature for taking us to see these!!
|This is a real stake-out!|
|Now in a much better position....|
|And this is the view from the camera|
|The hole has changed its appearance...|
|Did you knock?|
|...did YOU knock!?|
|This is a view down on top of a Water Vole runway|
|The run continues along the bottom here... |
and the three dark areas above, are where it has sat and fed.
|Yes... it is active this close to the house|
|This is the camera on tripod....|
I have extended the column, because the pictures below....
taken at half the height....
aren't showing the vole clearly enough.
|Just triggered the camera...|
|The vole is at the left....|
this will help you spot it in the video below.
|This is a Coypu kit... so much larger than a Muskrat or a Watervole.|
