So I’ve been away

Here a couple of the critters I saw.
I will admit to a bit of a thing about storks, blame Jackanory during the sixties. There always seemed to be cartwheels on the roofs/chimneys of  any european tales, ready for the return of the storks. But I don’t remember the stories, clogs, dykes, and wearing national dress probably.

This burly chap was happily swimming around a rain swollen inner city river, munching on anything green that floated past. He’s my first otter coypu, squee! Oddly enough some friends a, not on holiday, also saw an otter in their inner city river the same week, theirs had a fish – but I had a camera!

OK, I know I’ve been quiet for a few weeks. Nothing much happening I suppose but I was away for a few days. You may be able to work out where from the pics below? The bumble bee is probably shown a wee bit smaller than life size, he was impressive.
But now it’s back to the usual daily slippers and dressing gown, getting up at 3 in the afternoon, eating crisps and watching Murder She Wrote everyday… 😉
