nocturnal cuties!

Just thought I'd share a few pics of our nocturnal garden visitors. They wake us up with their hilarious squeaks while they chase each other round the garden in the wee small hours. They seem quite loved up which is pretty appropriate for the time of year (Valentine's for Badgers!) and make noises like a dog's squeaky toy, it's hard not to laugh. We also have a fox that comes often, last summer she'd leave her cub's here to play most nights while she went off on a bin raid on the neighbourhood!

One of the perks of being an insomniac with a rambly old garden that borders woodland, you get all these little visitors.

Wow! Seems quite enchanted! I doubt most of your American readers could say they have wildlife in their gardens!

I always imagine Racoons, skunks and bears and stuff wandering around, but I guess they are maybe a bit dangerous and bitey? There's nothing dangerous on these Islands, well, animal or plant wise.
