Photo montage...

... a day at home, mostly in the garden and walking Bunty.



Above - Smooth Newt. Being bothered...



Above - A camouflaged Terrier in there, beware ye who enters...




Above - Red Admiral. Quite a few butterflies in the garden today - Red Admiral 1 Peacock 1, Painted Lady 3, Wall, 1. Small tortoiseshell 2, Large White 4.



Above - The apples are coming on. There was a female Blackcap in here yesterday...



Above - Dahlia. A red theme today. No green or greenish!



Above - This young Woodpigeon was learning flight skills round the garden. Its a good job Bunty didnt see it...



Above - The garden needs some work. I'm on to it...



Above - Several young Moorhens on the pond today. Late broods.




Above - Continuing the Red theme especially for Kent based bloggers....a black tailed tufty....




Above - Yes, the 2 Swifts are still around....

Despite looking around all day, not a sign of my bird from yesterday. I did have Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and Sedge Warbler though, all in the same bush at the pond.

Is Bunty a bird chaser then, Stewart ? That mutt of ours chases anything & everything.

Looks like you had pleasant day at home, with some nice pics to boot.

Thanks for the black-tailed squirrel pics - do you bother them too?

Looks like the wind's getting up....good luck.

Its the terrier Dean, she is Jekyll and Hyde. She hates Woodpigeons with a passion. Before letting her in the garden we open the door and show ourselves to scare Woodies away then unleash the beast...

Steve - I tend to bother anything I can get to grips with. Its in my nature... :)
