Montage Madness – Part II

by admin - 17:02 on 15 February 2013

It's official (almost) – we have regular roe deer visits in the garden. We've not been lucky enough to get any more sightings but, for the second night, the Bushnell captured deer activity beneath the apple tree. It's just as well I never got around to tidying up the seed volcano at its base.

Their visiting times continue to be unpredictable. This morning they were here for half an hour from 2.30am, which means they've never appeared twice at the same time.

The male stars in all the snaps; the white rump of his mate could be glimpsed in the distance in a few of them. An hour after they left a pine marten appeared on The Nutella Tree, giving me the opportunity for more montage madness. All I need now is for Speedy the Hedgehog to emerge from hibernation to complete the picture of night-time activity.

The only daytime snap I have to offer was taken a couple of days ago, when we had our brief snowfall, and features the first brambling I've seen this winter.
