I’m not sure how good the pics are but this little beauty was trying to keep warm under a rock at the frog pond. Had to get pics so someone could make sure it wasn’t poisonous. It’s not so it got to stay by the frog pond. If it had of been we’d either take it to an uninhabited area or be too busy thinking how precious it was and just let it go.

Love the water snakes it’s always amazing to see how much they really resemble the cottonmouth!

‘I’ve got a frog pond under my bedroom window. Hubby gets disgusted with all the different chirps, tweets, trills and other frog song. But oh the bullfrogs! I love it all. He thinks I should let him get a gigger. Not. If you get the chance can you do a video to post with sound?

Will try and get one tonight it sounds like a single pluck of a low banjo string. I love my ponds so it’s something I have to deal with

A big oak came down in the wood during storm Ciara. This fungus known as Witches' Butter Exidia glandulosa was growing on a few of the branches.

I can report that it's not any good on toast!

No doubt this branch was dead but I'm not sure this particular fungus helped the tree's demise. Much of the trunk wood was softened by decay however.

Newt and salamander are common names for those creepy crawlies in my neck of the woods regardless of species. Lol

Sadly, some of these cool little guys are endangered or at risk in my area, due to habitat loss

There is a phrase in the English language "**** as a newt" which means "very drunk (intoxicated with alcohol)" haha!

We don't use the word Salamander for our Caudata here. Only the word Newt. Newts are in a sub-order of Salamanders.

Webbed hind feet are a characteristic of the Palmate Newt, our smallest newt.

Thanks for explaining Steve.

Think there is any resemblance in the way of walking of both "Newts" hahahaha

This hummingbird mama set up her nest about 3 feet from the front door. It was really fun watching her brood grow and develop.

Absolutely. I've been putting out a variety of seeds & nuts for the birds/chipmunks/squirrels - and enjoying watching them do their thing We've got a pair of robins nesting in a big fir tree in our front yard, so we're loving observing them - collecting nest materials, watching for predators, and taking baths in the bird bath.

I absolutely love chipmunks- squirrels too - even though they get the lions share of the birdseed!

Living in an apartment (UK flat) there's not much in the way of wildlife so I got creative. I hope the property management company doesn't object to my little addition to their swimming pool enclosure. It's not likely that the pool will see much use this year so hopefully they'll allow me this small luxury! I suspect my photos are going to be somewhat repetitive using the feeder but oh well, we take what we can get. Game. On.

Got a call from my son today. Said there’s a bald eagle nesting on the island.
I saw 4 different bald eagles today and I think an osprey.

I had no idea how much food birds could eat in a day, lol. Feeder supposedly holds around 3 pounds. Of course that depends on what you put in it but roughly 3 pounds. They pretty much emptied it in a day and a half. Oof. I bought the first bag at the grocery story. Next bag is coming from Tractor Supply. I can get 6-7 times as much for about the same price buying it there in bulk. Anyway, first day brought in the usual sparrows but also some dove, Mockingbirds and Cardinals. Not bad.

Finally got a decent shot of one in flight. Depth of field is so shallow up close that it's hard not to get something a bit fuzzy.
