More newbies - 102 up and mammal photos

Two new bird species this week - both waders. Julia had a pair of Oystercatchers flying over, and today a Greenshank flew high overhead, calling.

But the photo action has been mammalian and nocturnal - Badgers! And Foxes! Just fantastic to enjoy these two flagship mammals up close and regular, right in front of the patio door. Some decent moth traps of late have also turned up some good 'uns, the best of which was probably the very scarce and local Cloaked Carpet.
