A young visitor

I found a tiny toadlet in my garden today. I had a little talk to it and tried to persuade it to stay. I have a plentiful supply of slugs for it to feed on.

And another!

I recorded my first picture of a green woodpecker this week. One has visited my garden before but this one stayed a good time. I think it had found some ants in the bed nearby.

A new pecker

This time it's a female. She shows a lot of interest in one of the holes in the birch tree and I thought she might be nesting. It will be some time before I'm sure.

She sits preening a lot on the adjacent branch.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly around the National Trust land at Washington Common and Warren Hill in West Sussex. I also spend some time around my old Steyning walks and other interesting places in West Sussex.
