Having a good scratch half way out of the gateway
You know that bit that you can never reach!! We closed the gate when he moved back a little.
A grey highland, never seen one this colour before.
Stonechat, yes I know it is small, just a little way away!!
Common lizard basking in the sun
Lovely little creature
Today we have snow again on the mountains, lovely in the sun but the wind is freezing
Brrrr at least it has stayed dry even though not feeling like May.
Will put up a few more later
Lot to learn

Thanks Hazy and Wendy, going on a Yellowhammer count situated on the far side of the Reserve I was walking last week, can't wait, hope to get a few pics too.
Here are a couple more from today
Close up one of the white wabbit, just over the wall, and she sat there quite happily.
Her little one was the other side of the house and much more wary, and only the one today
Sue was very interested in the rabbit burrow today
Have to keep her on lead as she is small enough to go down if she wanted
Uh oh - a foxes poo, is that why Sue was interested, and will have to look out for the other young of white rabbit now.
Pool in field, usually kept free of weeds with the cattle drinking from there but no cattle as yet this year. The reeds in the distance were where I hoped to find a reed bunting but not a sausage so far.
my newest accessory, a tiny greenhouse on the right there, the one I had to hold down during the gales lately!!
Love the colours in May
Mr or Mrs Dunnock
Titch taking time for once to pose for me
He is soooo busy these days feeding his family
It is always such a pleasure to see him. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will get to see any young this year.
That's all folk
In reply to gaynorsl:

Made himself quite clear this morning Gaynor as he looked at me through kitchen window pleading for suet pellets & then came to porch door looking for waxworms ... managed to set cam up this time, will post footage later!
My bird photos HERE
You get some great views there, whether the mountains or your garden. Odd to see the lizards out and the snow on the mountain. It's a confusing time weather-wise! I keep looking for lizards but never see them. Good luck with the Sausages Reed Warblers
