In reply to HAZY:
HAZY said:The foxes seem to be regular visitors as your picking up plenty of night activity from them and I see Cyril is still doing his acrobatic impressions lol Nice to have hoggies in the garden too.
Foxes have been regular visitors here for many years. During my working days it wasn't unusual for me to startle a fox as I was about to set off for work.

More fox and Cyril activity, or should I say: "More fox activity and Cyril antics...."
With a day of warm sunshine we decided on another trip to Astbury Mere as its only 20 minutes away from home
Didn't take "Cyrilla" long to find the crushed peanuts !
just opposite Cyrilla there was a friendly robin who was lucky enough to receive live mealworms which I had taken with me !
other robin photos on "Robins for MC" thread
I always take swan/duck food with me, half the reason is to educate folk not to feed bread to the waterfowl ! It was heartening to see a little girl with her mother feeding the swans and cygnets with the proper duck/swan biscuits
Here's one of the adult mute Swans
and one of its two remaining offspring out on the mere ......
I took the camera today to get a pic of the ringed Coot .......... I'll update when I get information back on it
a rather tatty looking Dunnock in mid moult; think it had just bathed and was drying out in the sunshine when I spotted it
an endearing little lollipop :)
and house sparrow peeping out of the same tree .....
and finally a late Brimstone

Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
A couple from the garden
And from a walk along the river. Lovely out there at the moment
Nice photos Hazel and the sun made an appearance for you as well.
Not a lot to add, apart from our regular visiting collared doves.
This one had put a few wood pigeon noses out of joint, it was in the seed tray for a good long time, and the woopies will not challenge the collared doves after a skirmish earlier this year, and the CD's took control.
Keeping up to scratch...
What's the human doing?
Might be time to make a sharp exit....
What was that noise?
As some workmen across the road started up their machinery to continue footpath replacement works
Off it goes....
