A different visitor to the feeders today. He was very hungry and took quite a bit of shoo-ing away before he got the message! (after I took the photos of course 😀📷😎)
The new Tilbury docks as seen from Canvey Marshes.
Had a cold walk this dinner time, Even the local fishing pond was still iced over!
What a difference 2 days make. The moon is larger and because it comes up 2 hours later, it is now a lot whiter. This officially is a Blue Moon as there have been 2 full moons this month. Later tonight, there will be a lunar eclipse, but we wont see it here.
Just before dusk today, the rain stopped and this lovely moon showed it’s face in the blue sky.
A lovely sunset yesterday, The sky went from dark blue to a deep red glow. It was fantastic.
Had a lovely walk around the RSPB site at Canvey West Marshes today, not a lot of bird activity as the lakes were very low, but spotted this Bumble Bee gather some Autumn nectar.
Another photo from yesterday’s visit to Knole House in Kent. Once fully grown, this stag is going to have a fine set of antlers.
We had a great day out today at Knole House, a National Trust property. The deer in the deer park are so used to people they would happily feed within 6 feet of you.
Today’s visitor to the garden, a young Grey Squirrel, He was cleaning up the ground very well
Lots of bees around this weekend on the clover. This one had collected a lot of pollen.
A lovely Strawberry Moon last night.
Just to show that it is not only birds we get in our garden, here is a portrait of one of the frogs in the pond 🙂
This was one of the lovely Otters seen during our visit to the Chestnut Wildlife Park in Derbyshire last week. It was great to just stand there and watch them play.

Some lovely sunsets and scenery at the Dengie this weekend.
Today’s visitor to the garden was a Wood Mouse cleaning up the bird feeding area during a lull in the birds feeding. It disappeared very quickly when the birds came back 🙂
Not your usual pristine Pansy that you usually see in photos, but a real one from a real garden, slightly battered but showing it’s face to some beautiful sunshine
Another great sign of Spring, the bloosom on the Blackthorne trees. Looking forward to the Sloes later in the year.
We had a great afternoon wandering around the Watt Tyler Park at Pitsea this afternoon. It was a bit windy and quit grey, but still worth the time going there.
Bumble Bee on the Pussy Willow. I thought as I posted an ‘ugly’ photo earlier, I would post a photo that is showing that Spring is coming. Had a lovely walk around the RSPB Rainham Marshes today and this is one of the photos I took.
