Great shots.

Saved a wasp from drowning in a bird bath today. I think it was pissed.

I went to a red kite feeding place near Aberystwyth. They get about a 100 birds coming in every afternoon for free grub, so I had a bit of a bonanza. These are my top 6.

Amazing.  Incredible.  Great pics also.

Got a bat zooming round this place like a motherfucker right now.  Wow, there's tons of them!

Do errant cows in the woods count as wildlife?

Terrible photo but the other morning we got very close to this sparrowhawk (?) feeding on a pigeon. Couple of magpies nearby were going mental.
No photo but also saw a Hummingbird Hawk moth the other evening.

Yeah, that's a sparrowhawk.
Nice sighting on the moth, I've not had one this year! They're often in and out in a few minutes so I've probably missed a few around the buddleias, but it's the first time in years that I've not seen at least one. They're such wonderful little creatures.

Last night we saw a flock of ladybird larvae doing their alien impressions all over a sunbaked wall. We stopped counting at hundred and fifty so there was at least triple that many. Some of them were on the turn n all.

Today we saw a couple of huge flocks of lapwings which got me extremely giddy. Barely seen any for years and then we were inundated with them. We watched a squadron of them swoop and circle in formation and then lose themselves against the rocks of the dam wall when they landed. Perfect dazzle camo. Nice.
