Back to the Forest

Lured back to the Forest of Dean in the hope of Goshawk images I enjoyed a lovely sunny day. Unfortunately though my main subjects of Goshawk and boar eluded me and even the adders, dipper and pied flycatchers would not pose nicely. There was plenty of wildlife around though so I didn't come back completely empty handed.

Searching for boar turned up this fine roe buck in the bluebells. And whilst watching the peregrines at Symond's Yat Rock I was distracted by this wood mouse (or might it be a yellow necked mouse?) dashing and grabbing seed from near the viewpoint wall.

Finally instead of the little owls I was hoping for this red legged partridge posed for my camera. Some days you just have to take what you can get!
