We had an infestation of Meadow Voles here, coming from the un-mowed gardens nearby. A weasel moved in under my studio, and slowly the Vole damage disappeared. I have not seen a Vole now in two years, but the Weasel is still around. I really think they like Voles as a food source.

Ihave no pictures as of yet, but on Friday sept16 I have seen this weasel 3 times in concetitive years just out side my door in ST JOHN'S. twice as white as snow, the latest light brown with a white under belly. very small creature, but very nimble and curious almost friendly. I don't know if it is young or full grown. Ihave also seen vole activity in the same spot, wondering if it preys on thease voles? (reply...)

I have a great position in my late father's office. the Kingfisher's often sit outside on the balcony railing or on a nearby flag pole. All i need is time to sit and wait. they react to any movement.

I keep trying to get a better angle, without spooking them…They're so easily frightened off by the slightest movement, and yet if you keep still, you can stand twenty feet away and it's like you're invisible, even while firing burst after burst of shots. The sound of the camera's shutter doesn't seem to bother them at all. (reply...)
