Just been looking through my photographs and I came across this spider I saw crawling down the yard outside our house, I thought it looked strange at first then noticed it was carrying it's egg sack with it.
I went out tonight to feed the hedgehogs and within a few minutes of putting the food out I could hear something working it's way up to the garden. I went over to have a look and saw the hedgehog coming, so I quickly crouched down and set the camera recording. Managed to get this before I had to move as I was crouched on some nettles, worth the pain though.
Set out to film the bats today, I used my Panasonic Lumix GX-1 to film them, I filmed for about 10 mins and got some good fly past footage, Hope you find it interesting too.
I moved a brick in our garden and found this White Slug, I've never seen a slug this white before, Are there different types of slugs? I've always thought a slug was a slug.
Just a quick photo of 2 of our 8+ frogs we have in our small pond.
Our neighbour found 7 baby frogs in her cellar all looking very dry and near to death so she brought them over to our pond and put then next to it, that was yesterday and today I have seen a few of them hopping about near the pond area, after the last 2 days of sunshine we hosed the area down around our pond to put moisture back to the land.
Found this small Wasp in our garden, We are not sure what type it is it was only small about 5mm if that, I manage to get about 5 shots this been the best one.
Identified a Hoverfly (Sphaerophoria) via ispot.org.uk
We saw a bee in the yard not looking too good, so we decided to put it on or Butterfly Feeding Station so it could get some much needed sugar and water. As soon as we put it on the fruit the Tube it uses to get the nectar from the plants came out and started taking in what it needs, I watched if for about an hour but it didn't make it,
I'm not sure why.
We have put up a simple butterfly feeding station made out of a plastic ladle and filled with sugar water. Butterflies love sweet sugary things so hopefully we should get some feeding.
Update: Now with added fruit!!
Sat out in the garden again tonight, Started watching the bats when I heard a sound by the swing, So I crept up slowly & quietly and filmed the hedgehog.
Note: The hedgehog came back a few minutes later to feed on some peanuts.
Tonight I got to see the Hedgehog, I was sat out in the garden waiting for it to turn up but all around me people where going about the business noisily so I was just about to give up, then I saw a bit of movement near the swing then next doors dog came in the garden so I had to get up and shoo it away. The Hedgehog saw me and peeped at me from behind a small nettle plant the calmly turned round and walked off, that was the last sighting of it for today. Oh yeah I did manage to get 20 seconds of video of it.
