First 2 on the slideshow again are noisy , but lets face it these are nocturnal animals, they are 2 of Minty Badgers cubs, the second we have called Sonic as he is teeny tiny but bombs about like a loon :lol: last night we had 5 on the decking :mental:

Next you will see the Skywatchers and the Dawns at the Arundel WWT feeding the Hawaiian geese and assorted birds, decided not to post too many of the many hundreds taken as they are getting a bit samey but thought you'd like a few of the boys.

There were soooooo soooo many tiny cute peep peeps all around and the boys even got to stroke them !! remember these are essentially wild birds so its pretty amazing really.:jawdrop:

Those with extremely good eyes will see the worlds worst Water vole picture ( yes I had the wrong lens on for this) and although we saw 3!!! on the boat trip they were on the wrong side of the boat :rolleyes: :thumbsdown:

Anyway boys had a play on the plaything and I took some of the birds on the feeders, you can tell they are at the end of the breeding season and a bit bedraggled at the moment.

Hope Dawns internet mends soon so she can post a cool pic she took of Steven with something Tink will just love :D

in the middle is a small thing swimmming right to left just breaking the surface - that my friends is a genuine water vole

All the times I've visited Arundel and never seen one and you come along and 3 turn up at once. :rotfl:
