Critters   Leave a comment

Well two new ‘critters’ were spotted and photographed this week. The first is a cricket, but not your normal titchy little thing, this is about two inches long head to tail and has a really bad attitude. If you mess about with it it marches towards you and bites you! It draws blood too. I’m pretty sure these are the things that create the loudest noises in the bushes at night too.

The other thing is a Hoopoe which I managed to photograph this morning while having my breakfast. It visits here every summer but I’ve never been able to get a photo of it before. Cute little thing about the size of a magpie and the feathers sticking up from it’s head raise up like a fan sometimes. The name is supposed to come from the sound it makes but I haven’t heard it yet so I’ll have to wait and see.
