I took a day off work today to try and get my new roof watertight before the predicted rain at the weekend. Unfortunately, although it was sunny and mostly dry, the wind decided to blow hard enough to ruin my best efforts at roofing! So predictably attention turned to birding (what a surprise eh!), and more specifically trying to photograph more 'dodgy' variations of the local Rock Pipits! It was while photographing these, that this Otter decided to amble through... Not a great shot, but it was an opportunistic grab, before the Otter spotted me and scarpered!

The Wheatears are also back on my patch....

  1. I’m sorry that you had to contend with strong winds while you were doing your roof, and even sorrier that the wind won that time. I hope you eventually got your roof done though. I think it would be pretty cool if the birds around you all started helping out a la Disney movie. Haha!
