    Yesterday morning was very different at the same place. I did see quite a lot of wildlife but not good for photos :D

    This little chap never knew I was there and I was only a few yds away, The ponies had just left and I assume he just thought I was one of them

    There's a few Red Deer there that are hardly ever seen, there were 4 together :)

    Orchids so early? Wow. I guess that's how they get their name. Lovely pics.

    Beautiful photos Rona. Think the first bird looks like a warbler of some kind.

    I have a feeling that it's is a Sedge Warbler, but could easily be wrong

    The second I think might be a White Throat
