We had a sudden downpour a short while ago, the sort of rain that bounces off the ground so hard that you get wet from below as well as from above. After it had cleared, I noticed this little guy on the path in the back garden. I wasn’t sure if he was plain knackered, or if he was soaked. I made up a solution of sugar water and poured onto the ground next to him, which he quickly started to lick up. I could see that his back and wings were very wet and he was trying to get some sun to dry out. Fortunately the sun was out, and once he was dry and re-charged with sugar water, he was on his buzzy way.

My posts will be a collection of photos from our travels and anything I find interesting; and squirrels, lots of squirrels. View all posts by jezbraithwaite
