Brownsea Island the search for Squirrel Nutkin

As I type this I am totally fed up. Its been a super day but it now looks like my sensor is buggered. I’m going to have to attempt a wet clean Sunday night when I get home. If that fails back to Nikon!!

So I went to Brownsea Island as you can see the weather was gorgeous.

I was wondering how easy the target creature would be uh……

Oh the church, St Mary’s, is not in the book but the 800th I visited. Oh and look what turned up in the churchyard.

Birds seen included Spoobills, Godwits, Redshank, Arctic Tern, Shag, Little Egret and Chiffchaff

The journey back was a tour around the harbour the second largest natural harbour in the world.

As I was near the hotel look what scuttled across the road.

Luckily I saw him and slowed right down.He shouldn’t be out in daylight!!

But oh that sensor SOB!!!!

So you got the squirrel then, he seems to have a lot of dark fur though, even grey, not a hybrid is it! Very cute though.

Jan - no Greys there. I think the island populations will be separate sub species one day
