    I've seen flattened porcupines on highways a few times, they're such cute things and it's sad to see. I've heard foxes can often find havens on small islands.

    One of the neighbours puts out scraps of food when it's dark for the fox the food has gone when they check in the morning

    At risk of being downbeat I've noticed a lot of brown rats knocking about recently, horrible creatures!
    If we do opt for a little wild camping locally next year then it might be a case of stringing up hammocks and tarps!

    On a more cheery note it's always a pleasure to see the bold little robins, I do like to include them on my Christmas cards.
    ​​​​​​​My apologies for being premature!

A few times recently we've seen a wild rabbit. If anything gets into the house, under the roof or foundation, we might have to rethink things, but so far that hasn't happened.

    I did see butterflies earlier in the year, but it's been awhile since a dragonfly graced us with it's presence (always makes me think of an old Fleetwood Mac recording).
    I love hummingbirds unfortunately we don't have them here in UK

    We spotted a dragonfly this afternoon, a few butterflies about although nothing like it used to be before all the intensive farming and pesticides kicked in.

    Lucky enough to have a golf course opposite me, it has a large wooded are and deer live there . couple of summers ago a female decided to camp out in the long grass directly opposite our house . Would see her in the morning before she got up for her wanders.
    week or two later she was joined by her fawn.
    must admit I had tears in my eyes when I seen them

    Yeah, we have seen more variety of birds this year in the gardens, i found an injured thrush which i tried in vain to nurture back to health but alas it died, last year we had a huge toad which is a first, it was the size of a dinner plate...massive!
