a few lookalikies there are plenty of others

and only most of these are correctly labled

hint P. Sem is rather variable but many are P.Sem, other things are other things, some are properly named

extra hint, old shaman, book or interweb? show me a photo

They still look more like Liberty cap than anything else I am afraid. A tentative ID, but really look like that.

done it again

the pige thinks "feather whipped" i think "interacting as a chum with a wild critter" or "ultimate hunter "

some of the sparrows have perched in the past, with the derbyshire chaffinch(old snap on ds somewhere) was a snuggle pal but i was rubbish as a chef

in other wildlife news, cpre/rspb/en are a serious force that opposes the current deliberate assault on nature(as they put it)
never underestimate the middling sort if attacking their small pleasures such as "the countryside" or "my birds" (or in a historical sense "my vote")
it only takes a small and personal nudge to radicalise many of them far beyond the "traditional eco warrior" level of rage
they are also well positioned to alter voting patterns as well as using more direct means

I did read they had about 15m members between them, most of whom will be of voting age. Add to that non-members who don't fancy fracking near them or their water source and that could end up as something like half the voting population, as well as those that will give their MPs a hard time over it.

third morning and still eating from my hand, rather fun

my wildlife style is do my thing and let them do their thing, usually

otters quite fancy fried breakfasts as a change from fish, but trying to hide from them is very difficult.
sharing a place with beardy over there is less of a threat than a beardy over there trying and failing to hide for a probably dangeroos reason

i will try for snaps once it is a bit more used to it

i was quite surprised how gentle pigeons are compared to chooks, very precise seed picking rather than peck as hard as poss

The badgers have been busy in the woods lately; at least I assume it is badgers. Along quite a lot of paths, and some other places where there is a build up of leaf mould, there are scrapes and scrabbles where the badgers have been hunting out worms and insects.

The badgers were busy down the allotment a few weeks ago, they ate all my sweetcorn.

Oh, what a shame. We have had what I think is a fox round the garden which keeps tipping over my kitchen waste bucket. Doesn't seem to eat anything. I put scraps from the wool I am spinning in there as well, so am wondering if that is attracting it, although can't think why as it is washed.

in the nicest possible way, get even with the brocks.

find them slyly, check their spoil heaps for "treasure" as you steal that nice soil for adding to the growing beds

ditto moles

i have no idea of the legal implications of that suggestion, ignorance is bliss

ps bunnies gave me a nice roman pot shard

they are rather cute

i have been a bit slack at taking snaps recently for a mixture of reasons, mostly enjoying the moment and learning to look

the current sammison tribe have at least one youngster (not in snap so far)

the pigeons know their place one has hand privileges the others have to work as cleaners(and down donors) for the sparrows
