ShareMondays2020 – Wonderful Wren

Wonderful Wren

ShareMondays2020 – Wonderful Wren

Never dismiss the little things in life, the simple pleasures, the joy of watching a tiny wren busying about in the bracken, building a nest. So busy he didn’t worry about me sitting in my wheelchair watching his activities. He hopped over so closely a few times it actually took my breath away!

Wonderful Wren

I wish I could return to watch his progress but I am being “shielded” at home for the next 12 weeks as I am most vulnerable to complications from coronavirus. I hope these little wrens will come through this years breeding season safely. I hope that all of us come through this crisis safely! With any luck, I will see the wrens again on the other side of all this. Take care everyone x

Warmth in Winter

ShareMondays2020 – Winter Warmer

Finding myself vitamin D deficient once again I am trying to get out into the sunshine as much as possible! I spent an afternoon at Bushy Park last week, soaking up those precious rays and watching the wildlife. It was so mild I ended up shedding my big winter coat. It was fun watching the deer and wrens in the bracken near Heron Pond, before heading over to the Woodland Gardens for sunset and a cuppa at the cafe.

The Chase

Signs of an early Spring were very evident in the Woodland Gardens! Watching the parakeets feasting on cherry blossom is a sight I don’t usually see for another two months! Just as the sun was setting at around half four, I came across one of the resident rabbits. I was really surprised to see one out of the warren at this time of day and year! The rabbits here are more used to people walking by and I was able to get really close to it, capturing the details of the fur and even a reflection of the sunset in the rabbit’s eye. The leaf litter in the background glowed in the late light and this little rabbit just stole my heart!
