Blackberry Way - The Move

With the mercury just qualifying for a minus figure at dawn on Saturday it was considered good fortune that we had a few Moth images from the previous couple of days. Additionally, it was Western on the Quite Front with still no signs of a Yellow-browed Warbler, Shelduck or even a more expected troop of Northern Thrushes, unless of course you count a lone Feildfare crossing the mid-morning sky yesterday? However, we recouped in other directions so all was not lost!

GEM
 DEEP-BROWN DART
 and maybe the last we will see of
WILLOW BEAUTY
until next year?

 While shaping up for an altogether different shot,

 from out of nowhere appeared this

 STOAT
 which also disappeared as quickly as it had arrived and fortunately the

 ROOKS
held station on the overhead wires.
The first of what were to be c5
GREY SQUIRREL
on the day before a little bit of 'catch-up'.
Driving up to the Common we had intended photographing this
SILVER BIRCH
 for a couple of days now and before it loses its colour.
At the Irrigation Pond there was something to catch our attention

 if only half a dozen

females.

While it is of no surprise to find
BLACKBERRIES
on the brier at this time of year, it did seem a little strange to find
BLOSSOM
as well on the very same bush.
One of the other
GREY SQUIRRELS
we didn't get all 5 but surely 2 is enough!
