I just thought I would share this because it looks beautiful. I am pretty sure it is a pink poppy, it might be a cross-breed.
As my garden is very wildlife friendly I get many common toads. I went out at 9:00 last night and there were toads everywhere!
To you it may seem like there aren't many toads and guess what... You are right. Please help these garden friends by either making a pond or giving them a home. They are rapidly declining in numbers and soon they will not be known as "common" toads.
Frogs, toads and newts are under more threat than ever before!!! This is because many people fill in their ponds because they fear their children will drown in them! So please, please, please try and help frogs, newts, toads and snakes.
I collect wildlife data at my local nature reserves such as the new priest hill nature reserve in surrey. Priest hill nature reserve is one of the most popular breeding havens for skylarks in England. Try and spot the deer
Personally I love grey-backed shrikes. This one was in a bush on the Golf course. You may not of heard of them though.
I'm sorry about the bad quality of this photo. Anyway this is a Cattle Egret by the side of a lake on the golf course. It was on the opposite side of the lake from me.
I am not 100 hundred per cent sure what dragonfly this is because it may be a slightly different species to the English type.
This is a Swallow Nest at a half way point on the golf course. Funnily enough it was just above the doorway as you walked into the toilettes.
Personally, the story of this bird was my favourite part of my holiday in Spain. Well basically... I heard a rustle in a bush in the front garden of the villa I was staying in... I got a shock when I almost stepped on a House Martin Fledgling which had supposedly fallen out of the nest below my roof. It was flapping its wings and trying to fly but it could not take off, maybe this is because house martins cannot take off from the ground... Anyway, this House Martin looked as it had a deformed foot so that way have been a reason. To help it I gave it several dead flies and some water. It may have survived or sadly it may have been eaten by a cat but I don't know.
And now for... The Viperine Snake!!! This snake was underwater in the gold course river. Viperine Snakes spend a lot of their time in water but they do live on land.
I am not being unprofessional not telling people what Lizard this is, I'm just interested if anyone can guess it. Its called "guess the Lizard".
Here are a pair of house Martin Nestlings in their nest. The nest is below the roof of my villa in Spain. They are quite adorable to watch.
