I’ve been meaning to go to Margam Park for ages and finally got around to going. It’s a managed herd of Deer which includes Fallow, Red and Pere David Deer. They are more used to humans than Deer in woodland, so are easier to photograph as well as being out in the open rather than a shady forest so the light was real nice.
I found a good spot for photographing Kingfishers on a localish river. I usually like to wander around rather than be stuck in one place. I though I would use my hide for a change and I think it worked out pretty well, with the drizzle adding a bit of atmosphere.
There are always a few horses in a field up the road from the local lake. This time of year, there was some amazing looking fields full of buttercups which gave the perfect setting for these horses.
I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but how cute is this baby rat.

Some more critter-cam footage. I pointed it near a hole in the ground to see if it was a Badger set and managed to get quite a lot of footage. Deer, Fox, Badger and Mouse in the same area within a few days. It's a shame only my 8gb card works in the camera or I would have probably got a lot more. #deer #fallowdeer #fox #redfox #vulpesvulpes #mouse #badger #woodland #woods #forest #forestcreatures #rspb_love_nature #springwatch #ukwildlife #nature #naturephotography #lovenature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #lovewildlife #wildlifephoto #naturegram #animalgram #thebritishwildlife #uk_wildlife_images #ukwildlifeimages #wildlife_in_britain #welshwildlife
It looks like a house mouse (Mus musculus for all you latin nerds). It’s really skittish and only quickly pops out, then runs straight back under the shed.
