It seems like today was a wildlife day. First thing this morning me and the minion were walking out the back door when we saw a grey squirrel. (s)he bolted up and along the fence to the copse of trees at the back to get away.
I have never seen a squirrel in the 14 years we have lived here. I hope we didn’t scare it too much and it comes back at some point!
Next up was a raptor of some kind. I think it was a Kestrel. About 11 am I saw it whip over my head while I was outside and then it did the wing folding thing that Kestrels do, this is why I think it was a Kestrel rather than anything else, and it dived into the same copse the squirrel escaped to earlier.
Typically the two things above were just simply WAY too fast for me to get a pic or anything. But the last thing I did capture. I found a Bee having a swim in my pond-in-a-pot… Well… Clinging to a leaf for dear life would be more accurate!
I gently lifted it out, gave it some honey as I didn’t know how long it had been there then got it into the sun and then got a bit of video and put it up on YouTube.
In all a bit of a busy day, really.
