First hare spotted this year

First hare spot of the year. It ran as soon as I got out of the car. They are amazingly fast – it was in the next field in moments.

Robins

Yesterday I went for a walk at Priory Country Park in Bedford. One of my favourite places at the moment. You can always guarantee seeing something whether it’s swans, grebes or ducks, or butterflies, dragonflies, squirrels, rabbits … or robins. I’ve never seen so many robins in so short a time. Here’s a few that I managed to get a picture of. A couple are ringed.

Christmas lights

My photo-a-day theme for Christmas week was lights.
