Anyway we took a walk down the lane and around the pond and who should we meet but this little fella. It was just typical that I still have to use the old Fuji as this would have been a much better shot. Still it's lovely to see red squirrels not far from our house. They're quite timid and not at all like their London cousins, the common grey variety :)
We also Mr & Mrs Swan back on the nest, although it looks a bit water logged at the minute. It's normally a lot higher out of the water than it is just now. With any luck they'll get it sorted in time for the spring when we hope they'll use it for the 3rd time. This year we started with 7 babies and ended with 7. I like to keep a count of my babies as the foxes are very partial to them, given a chance.
And finally the view of the pond. It's looking very bare and sad at the minute..................
a big change from earlier this year!!
