Whisky is certainly keeping me busy ......... in the best possible way.
He continues to grow, and is really settling in to the life here, away from the open fields of Wales that he grew up in.
We did make a brief visit back there recently, when my friends dogs had succumbed to some poison. It was touch and go for one of them; but thankfully to the skill and dedication of the vets, all three dogs made a full recovery.
While I was there, I managed a couple of pictures.
He had a damaged foot, and I think he had fallen from the nest too early.
Despite the best efforts of the adult male feeding him, and us putting him in a safe area, he sadly died a few days later.
The moth traps had a couple of outings while I was there, although the weather was more like winter, than the summer I left behind. Nothing special to show, but when I got home, a few interesting moths were revealed when I put a trap out.
Large Yellow Underwing
He appeared after I had watered one of my pots of plants.
I've had a few visits to my local lake recently, (once the car had been fixed; fuel injectors. Bloody expensive these cars!), and a couple of the highlights have been ..................
A Tufted Duck, and her seven ducklings.
Juvenile Long Tailed Tit.
And some butterfly pictures from the garden
Feeding on some of the rubbish scooped from the pond. Yuck!!
That's it for now, from me and the boy
Enjoy the rest of the day
