All the creatures… May 14, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Canvas Summer Nige @ 9:48 pm

I was thinking about all the creatures that I have living around me.  Some people never see any kind of animal/wildlife unless it’s domestic pets, or in a zoo. 

We have seen/have:

  • Great crested newt (2 seen in the house, 1 out in the car-port).
  • Couts/Moorhens
  • Wild rabbits
  • An Owl
  • Moles (recently saw babies in a small nest)(and saw a real one the other day)
  • Field mice
  • Rats (!)
  • Pheasants
  • Foxes
  • Bats
  • Of course: Sheep, Horses, Next door’s dog, our Chickens
  • Crawlies: Earwigs, Beetles, Spiders, ladybirds, moths, many flys/midges [all in the house]
  • Tonnes of birds: tits, jays, robins etc

 

Experiences:

  • Killing a wild rabbit
  • Seeing a chicken peck/eat a bumble bee/wasp
  • Seeing baby birds fall out of nests/dead :<
  • Seeing an poorly/abandoned mole baby – and family of other moles
  • Robin flying around the house (twice)
  • Other birds flying around the attic!
