Messing about in the river

Spent a delightful half an hour in the company of one of the local Otters on my way home from work.  This is one of four cubs born last year and have become something of local celebrities with at two becoming remarkably confiding, even playing around in the river by the mill in the centre of Thetford at lunchtimes.

Blending in...

The female Nightjar seen and photographed at close range on a nest found a few days ago in Thetford Forest, and several other Nightjars showed well around the area at dusk and Stone Curlews calling nearby.

2 Hobbies present around a probable nest site and showed well and a Turtle Dove heard purring here too, the latter being my first of the year showing how scarce they have become.
