My parents and I had a lovely walk along the boardwalks at Holme. The beach and sea were on one side and heathland on the other. It was pretty quiet on the bird front, but on the walk back I walked on the path through the heath and bushes. I came across this little ginger guy. He was so cute. I think we were both surprised to see each other. He kept looking at me then scampering away. Then he'd come back and take another look, almost to say I can't believe you're here. This happened a few times before it disappeared down a hole.
Cute little paws and a very short ginger tale. It's been confirmed as a Weasel, and yet another first for me.
