Food Glorious Food

When I think about it most wildlife seems to spend a large part of its time just looking for food. Here are some of those which came looking yesterday.

Blue Tit and Starlings

 Of course, once it had started to get dark, the Hedgehogs arrived. They turned up as I was clearing up in the kitchen and I decided to watch them for a while only to end up being fascinated for the best part of half an hour filming them with the camcorder set to night vision. It would appear that the charging we have seen has more to it than meets the eye at first glance. It seemed to me that what I was watching was part of the mating ritual. I will have to spend some time extracting what I can from the video as the camera was having difficulty focussing and the hogs kept moving where there were obstructions to vision.

All things being equal there should be some video of the Hedgehogs for Friday at the Flicks tomorrow.


  1. Such wonderful photographs~ always! Love to visit your blog!
    Hope your day is wonderful!

  2. Nice collage John, yes it seems that is their main aim in life. I suppose its what we would do if we didn't have the convenience of shops and money etc.

  3. Thank you for those kind words Michelle. Wish I could draw half as well as you do.

  4. Thank you Roy. It's not so long ago really that we surfs would have been working all day on someone elses land.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
