Phasianus colchicus

The common pheasant - famous for its sexual dimorphism and the iridescent sheen of the cock - is a well known gamebird with over 30 subspecies worldwide. Native to Asia, they were probably introduced to Britain by the Romans, although the first written evidence of their existence is not until an order from King Harold in 1059.  If startled, they burst upwards with great speed and characteristic “whirring” flight sound, alerting conspecifics and reaching up to 56 mph. Common pheasants lay clutches of 8-15 eggs between April and June with an incubation period of 22-27 days. Once hatched offspring mature quickly, often taking flight at only 12 days old. #nature #britishnature #britishwildlife #acrylicpainting #acrylic #windsorandnewton #pheasant #conservation #painting #happybirthdaydad

This wasp nest was exposed after a huge branch had fallen from a tree. No wasps left. 
In the summer, you can hear them.munching on the wood of my parents' shed...to get the material to build their intricate little homes. Fascinating, and what incredible designs.

If it had been lower down and at risk of damage, I might have considered taking it home for preservation but it's far better that other people get to see it and enjoy it, and I'm sure nature will reclaim it in some way.

Autumn colour from the top of Curley Hill (with a liitle extra height from the drone) looking towards Woking in the distance. We're so lucky in Surrey to have all these beautiful trees.

This Great White Egret was fishing with great success in the drizzle this morning, at @HertsWildlifeTrust Marsworth Reservoir near Tring.
•••
The Great White Egret was originally an Eastern European species of Heron, but due to global warming, changes to their habitats, & natural expansion, their breeding & wintering ranges have spread north-west.
In 2012 the Great White Egret bred in the UK for the first time in Somerset & since 2016 has bred in Norfolk.
Pure white like the Little Egret but as large as a Grey Heron, it is a very impressive bird.
•••
Filmed handheld with very wet #iPhoneX, 2x telephoto phone lens & #Opticron Classic IF MkII scope with rain all over the lenses!

A Common Toad getting ready to hibernate under an old sheet of corrugated steel, at @BoxMoorTrust’s Gadespring Cress Beds.
•••
Most amphibians hibernate for the winter. In gardens they choose places such as amongst dead wood, in a compost heap, under decking, your shed, or other objects, but don’t worry if you see them out & about during the winter as they will take advantage of warmer spells to forage for food.
Why not make a toad house in your garden for them to shelter & hibernate in?

Just back from a night-time drive in the North Chilterns looking for mammals & owls. I was only armed with my phone, but it’s surprising what’s possible photographing nocturnal wildlife with a mobile these days...
Here are 2 of 3 Tawny Owls I saw, & the purest white-morph doe Fallow Deer at @NationalTrust Ashridge, accompanied by a camouflaged young dark-morph...
•••
Taken with iPhoneX #iphoneonly
•••
In total I saw
3 Tawny Owls,
C.7 dark-morph Fallow Deer,
1 white-morph Fallow Deer,
1 Reeves’ Muntjac,
1 Red Fox
& an unidentified carnivore - long & low, a little smaller than a domestic cat, bounding across the road, probably a Polecat.

To find out more, where to find wildlife near you, & how to identify each species, keep following me for a link to my forthcoming blog.

Stop, Look, Listen... A Hedgehog crossing the road.

Gardeners' best friend, keeping slugs at bay, & one of the UK's favourite animals, these prickly pest controllers are in serious trouble - in the 1950s there were an est. 36.5 million Hedgehogs in the UK, by 1995 only 1.5 million, by 2001 probably only ¾ million, & the decline has continued in the 16 years since! The causes of such a dramatic decrease in population include poisoning by slug pellets, insecticides & climate change reducing available food, loss of habitat due to development & intensive farming, use of fences isolating gardens, & road casualties. So, on your drive home tonight, or when gardening at the weekend, give our little neighbours some consideration.

How cool are these fungi? I saw them on my stroll through the woods to the beach yesterday. 
I'm not very good at mushroom and toadstool identification but I do have a book so will endeavour to find an ID. Then I will update this post. :)

No.488 - One of my favourite moths this year was this Treble Bar (Aplocera plagiata) from RSPB Sandy. It's memorable, mainly for the amount of time I spent tracking it around the heather hoping it wouldn't notice me approach it. I reckon it took about twenty minutes of slow, painstaking cat-and-mouse, and a camera switch to finally get it. I couldn't get close with the 65 or the 100 macro, so I instead used my brilliant little Lumix to creep up on it. :::

Last legs Urban Fox.
I had been photographing this poor little fix for six months until she passed away from mange.  I had been leaving treatment for her fit a while but broke my toe playing football so was unable to give her treatment for a while. This was the last time I saw her alive. She was in the middle of the road with a car stuck behind her. A few seconds later the car overtook her and she was safe. A beautiful little fix and shame to see her deteriorate so quickly.

A beautiful little fix and shame to see her deteriorate so quickly. #mange  #urbanfox  #urban  #fox  #instagram  #instapics  #instagood  #instansture  #wildlife  #wildlifephotography  #photo  #photography  #car  #bristol  #wideangle  #night  #awesome  #amazing  #portrait  #nightphotography  #canon  #vixen  #britishnature  #british  #britishnaturephotography  #wildlife  #clifton  #travel  #travelgram 
A good thing about short-eared owls is that they fly in daylight, particularly from mid-afternoon onwards and the likelihood is that they could stay much of the winter, providing we don't get a long cold spell where the ground is frozen for a significant period.

In Sussex we do get visited by short-eared owls most winters but numbers varies considerably, sometimes they are very scarce. They breed in the northern uplands of Britain and tend to move south after breeding where it is easier to find their main food - voles. How many we get depends on how successful their breeding season has been and how much food is available.

Whay I love about Cornwall is that you just don't know what amazing wildlife you'll see next. 
Go for a stroll...see a seal. :) and this one I saw on my birthday a couple of years ago. .
