Rails, snipes, battling herons, shellfish eating duck, a cute little mouse, my favourite, the kingfisher and even a raptor. Quite a lot of life at your pond, nan O/\ O/\ ^Q^ ^Q^ ^Q^

WOW, nan! Your pond provided well for you again :-0

Those herons are vicious :shock: Not nice to dip the other one down the water :X:

That goshawk sighting is marvellous ^Q^ And also the common snipe and the duck with the crayfish ^Q^

I also like that mystic spider web photo. So autumn like \O

Gets me itching to work the camera again... O**
