    Rodents to ID, Switzerland

    Hi, who can help in these rodents from NW Switzerland? The track is likely lynx, but good luck trying to see a lynx just because you seen its footprints!

  7. Sparrowhawk mantling a Mouse

    Sparrowhawk mantling a Mouse

    Grubby double glazing, glare on the glass, and poor light yesterday, so high(ish) ISO and slow shutter speed... but I don't see him in this pose in my trees often, and you can still see the fur of the prey. He'd just caught the Mouse and flew into my trees to eat it, but the mouse almost...
  8. Sparrowhawk with another Mouse

    Sparrowhawk with another Mouse

    Awkward lighting, but I wanted to show and explain behaviour. Fred took another one yesterday, you should be able to see the tail hanging down. I've now worked out why Fred, and maybe other Sparrowhawks, given the choice, prefer Mice to Birds. I've seen male Sparrowhawks eat every bird from...

    Sparrowhawk with Mouse - (from yesterday)

    Wet yesterday morning, so through wet double glazing. Fred has been working his way through the local Mice with a vengeance... at least 4 in the last 3 days. I even saw him on a fence a few gardens along... he had a Mouse there too. (I'm using Linux for editing ATM, so I'm not sure how these...
  10. In one end... out the other

    In one end... out the other

    Not a fast enough shutter speed and a grubby window, but I thought this interesting. More so, as he had already eaten another Mouse earlier... which could be what's coming out the other end ;) Camera Maker: SONY Camera Model: SLT-A58 Lens: 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 Image Date: 2015-01-28 11:37:14 (no...

    Sparrowhawk with Mouse prey

    Same day as the one I uploaded with Fred on the fence, but a different Mouse. Through the double glazing and poor light as usual, so ISO 800 and 1/13th second shutter.

  14. Mouse again

    Mouse again

    After he jumped off my camera bag, he disappeared into the folds of an old shirt that was lying on the shed floor which I was planning on using as a cleaning cloth.(Fortunately I had just thrown it there so it was still clean) I gently lifted a corner of the cloth and...well, he sure looked cute...
  15. Mouse


    Saw markranner's cute mouse photos, then b'gosh if a very similar thing didn't happen to me! Must be the time of year! lol. I was outside my shed when I almost stepped on this little mouse. He scampered around in a panicky state trying to hide, eventually making his way onto my camera bag. I...
  16. Mouse


    Was cleaning out one of my sheds when this guy popped out of the woodwork. I know many people list these things as vermin, however, it was just so cute there was no way I could consider violence toward it. So I had to gently usher it out the door to freedom. lol.

    Up A Rose Tree

    This visitor was enjoying the birds fat ball. I ended up having to move all the feeders away from the house and to a greater height. It used the rose tree to climb up. I had just caught something in my vision, thinking it was the wren but was horrified to find what it was. Worse still a baby...

    Kestrel with lunch

    Driving out in the fields of Kin, spotted this female Kestrel standing on the ground, I pulled over and used my truck as cover, managed to get two shots of her before she took off. I didn't realize it when I took the photo, but only after looking at it after I downloaded it that she had just...
