Friday evevning I was lucky enough to be invited to Wytham woods to see where they study badgers. I saw three badgers but none of the photos I took were very good. I really enjoyed the evening especially the Land Rover safari, but I think I prefer my local badgers.
As we wandered through the wood on Sunday morning the wind was blowing through the trees and there didn't seem to be much wildlife around.
I saw these two Muntjac deers at the back of the wood and a Blue tit having a bath in a stream.

I was looking out of my window across the field when I saw a Magpie fighting with something brown. At first I thought it was a Buzzard and perhaps a Pheasant. They were coming up out of the crops about 1m in the air then disappearing in the wheat. I grabbed my camera and looked through the zoom lens.
It was a Hare fighting with a Magpie.
I thought perhaps the magpie was after the hare's babies.
Unfortunately it was at the end of my camera's zoom so the photos were rubbish.
