Garden beauty galore!

Yesterday I visited Elford Hall Garden with my local Wildlife Trust Group (The Lichfield Wildlife Trust). Firstly we were given an introduction about the place then we went on a walk round. I managed to get lots of lovely photos of the beautiful flowers, sights and wildlife here. The sight was nothing less then a wildlife haven, with ancient trees, bug hotels, a wide variety of plants, the River Tame which goes past and some woodland areas. It was a wonderful place to walk around and I’m looking forward to going again. For more information about Elford Hall Garden here’s the website – http://www.elfordhallgarden.org.uk/

Here are some photos that I took.

Is it a fox? No it’s a mouse!

On Sunday night I decided to set my trail camera up around a local nature reserve in the hope of recording foxes. I know there are foxes in the area as I’ve seen and heard them here in the past, so I set my trail camera up and put some dry dog food down. This was the second time in the last few days I’d set it in this area but the first time I had no luck. When I returned the next morning all the food had gone and as soon as I got there my dog, Max, started to roll around in the area in front of the camera so I was pretty certain foxes had been there through the night. But when I looked at what I had recorded I hadn’t recorded anything but a mouse! I’m not sure If it’s a field or wood mouse as the quality isn’t very good and he’s so small. To have not recorded foxes I think my camera had obviously stopped working at some point in the night but I’ll be back soon for some fox footage!

Here’s some of the videos I got of the mouse:
