Vole catcher. Thank you @phil_thorogood for sharing #britishbirdlovers #barnowl
Today I took a trip to #burnhamonsea and before getting stuck knee deep in mud, I was struck by this sight on the #mudflats . I don't know what this chains original purpose was but now it is home to many #barnacles that cling to its surface. I thought it was kinda beautiful . . . #randomactsofwildness #britishwildlife #autumnwatch #bbcautumnwatch #wild #wildlife #nature #walk #british #britishnature #uknature #ukwildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #barnacle #england #wildlifetrust #naturewatch #sea #seaside #ocean #marinelife #marine #coastal #beach #coast #shells
Late afternoon Barn Owl, terrible lighting can’t wait for spring!

More of the Norfolk snow buntings. They were surprisingly obliging, more so than the sunlight. #snowbunting #bunting #rspb_love_nature #holkhambeach #holkham #norfolkwildlifetrust #norfolk

A spot of bird watching on the feeders at work today. We're giving them lots of seeds and lard (pasted onto a pine cone to make an easy, natural bird feeder) to help them during this cold spell. At this time of year, small garden birds like these tits need to eat up to 30% of their body weight each day to give them the energy to get through the long nights! #birds #birdfeeder #nature #UKnature #wildlife #UKwildlife #gardenbirds #bluetit #greattit #tit #tits #feedthebirds #westboldonlodge #winter #cold #weather #instanature #outdoors #conservation

A solitary Oystercatcher doing its best Dipper impersonation in the Highlands on Scotland! Cool little birds with one of the loudest calls I think I have ever heard, they don’t half make a racket! #wildlifephotography #wildlife #naturephotography #nature #ukwildlife #rspb #scotland #findhornvalley #riverfindhorn #cairngorms #highlands #oystercatcher #canon #canonuk #600mm #adventure #photography #bokeh
Probably one of the most common fungi you'll encounter during the winter; turkeytail, or Trametes versicolour. It's Latin name translates roughly as 'thin of many colours', which is apt seeing as it can vary so much. I think it's quite beautiful ☺️🤓🦃
They’re nutty . . In the UK we have an abundance of squirrels, I think we take them for granted here. It is unfortunately rare to see red squirrels, they have been out bred by the grey squirrel . . Nikon D850 + Nikon 80-400mm
These stunners from the amazing @maggiemagoodesigns are a best seller on #etsy . They are beautiful and even more so in reality. I adore mine. Even better 25% of the proceeds are donated to help the hedgehogs in my care. i’m blown away by all the precious funds they’ve raised so a huge thank you to Carole and everyone who has bought one. See her profile for etsy link to get yours ❤️🦔❤️ #hedgehogsofinstagram #hedgehog #hedgehogs #hedgehogworld #hedgehogcommunity #wildhedgehog #hedgehogrescue #hedgehogrehab #wildlife #ukwildlife #cute #etsy #bestofetsy #wildlifeart #inspiredbynature_ #inspiredbynature #handmade #animalhospital #helpinganimals #savingwildlife #savingnature
Last Friday I had brilliant day coppicing hazel at Thorncombe Woods LNR! 🌳 Coppicing is a traditional woodland management technique - it relies upon the regrowth of news shoots after cutting trees to harvest the wood! 🌱 . The coppice is divided into a number of sections or ‘coupes’ equal the number of years in its cutting rotation. This is typically around 6-12 sections/years for hazel, meaning that one section is cut each winter on a 6-12 year cycle. ❄️ . As each coupe is a different age, a fantastic varied habitat is created, enabling everything from foxgloves to shoot through an open canopy in the spring, to a home for dormice hibernating in the old stools over winter! 🐹 . #hazelcoppice #thorncombewoods #dorchester #traditionalskills #traditionalcraft #conservationphotography #wildlifeconservation #habitatmanagement #britishwildlife #britishnature #wildbritain #ukwildlife #thingsrangersdo #countrysidework #countrysidelife #workoutdoors #arborists #arblife #treework #treeremoval #greenwoodworking #coppicecrafts #arboristsofinstagram #treefelling #lumberjacks #woodsman #woodlandmanagement #coppice #coppicing #practicalskills
Today is #SquirrelAppreciationDay So to fully appreciate the red squirrel, here's a few fun Red Squirrel facts: 🌰 Squirrels moult their coat twice a year, once after winter and then in the late summer before the weather gets colder again. 🌰 They can live to around six years of age. 🌰 They have four fingers and five toes. 🌰 Squirrels live in a drey: a nest made from twigs, leaves and moss. Here's our Low Poly Red Squirrel design available on our T-Shirts, Hoodies and Tote Bags. All ethically made, all organic cotton!!! #RedSquirrel #redsquirrels #Squirrel #squirrels #LowPoly #Illustration #Design #DigitalArt #EthicalClothing #ukwildlife #WindPower #Organic #Ethical #SustainableFashion #beattheblues #factoftheday #outfitoftheday #ootd #mondaymotivation #bluemonday #EcoClothing #FairWear #MensFashion #WomensFashion #KidsFashion #Bristol #BristolFashion #Wildlife #BristolIndependent
#BlueMonday - Did you know, the intense blue colour of a Kingfisher is not the result of a pigment but actually the light reflecting from their specialised feathers. 📸 Jon Hawkins - Surrey Hills Photography
For those lucky enough to have seen these guys in the wild you'll know how exciting it is to see the small flash of red darting through the trees. Unfortunately the population of red squirrels in the UK has been devastated by the arrival of the non-native grey squirrel and their time is running out.. ☹🐾🌲 . . . . . #TopUkPhoto #redsquirrel #ukwildlife #uknature #wildlifeconservation #WildlifePhotography #canon_photos #passionpassport #adventureanywhere #visualsofearth #earthoutdoors #aov #ukpotd #uk_greatshots #earthfocus #photooftheday #bestoftheday #ig_daily #photooftheday #folksouls #discoverglobe #naturephotography #nakedplanet #wildernessculture #modernoutdoors #roamtheplanet #wildlifeplanet #natureshooters #animalplanet @topukphoto @roamtheplanet @earthpix @livefolk @wildlifeplanet @natureshooters @discoverearth @passionpassport @ourplanetdaily @canon_photos @artofvisuals  @discoverglobe

Sometimes you stumble into something so perfect it takes your breath away. Was honoured to spend an hour with this stunner earlier. While #urban #foxes might seem tame, I'm always careful to respect their space ❤️ . #fox #urbanfox #vixen #wildlifephotography #foxesofinstagram #instafox #naturehippies_ #ukwildlife #mammalsofinstagram #perfect #photooftheday #ukpotd #urbanwildlife #vulpes #followme #urbanwildlife #ukwildlifeimages #followme #nature_photography #naturephotography #winterwatch @bbcspringwatch @lumixuk #fz72
Starlings flying about at sunset. That's Christchurch Priory in the background. This was shot on the @sigmauk 150-600mm sport lens. An absolute beast of a lens. #wildlife #dorset #sunset #ukpotd #worldshares #birdphotography #lovefordorset #ukwildlife #uknature #wildlifephotography
