Orinoco, very likely our resident hedgehog having a scratch as well as finding food., named after someone decided there was some resemblance with the Wombles so was the adopted name Orinoco.
The crows seem to have returned to the garden
A greater spotted woodpecker (F) on the feeders. We have male and female visiting the feeders, but not both at the same time.
Falling is always inevitable, and the squirrels still keep trying....
We now have three crows regularly visiting the garden. One of the crows heads towards a water bowl by the pond and has a drink while the other two carry on foraging for food.

A few odds and sods from the last week or two in the local peaks.
The albino fallow did cause lots of conversation a year or too back. It's only the second time I have come across it, despite its colour it is very elusive.
I think it sticks with the bigger red deer for protection and due to it's size they accept it... it is ever so boingy as the clip shows. Probably because the red deer can just plough through the heather and its too small so bounces it's way through.
