Frankie and Crybbe's Woodland Walk

This is a photo of my Uncle Frankie who came to stay with us for a couple of days (before Pip's puppies arrived). He is my Aunty Frida's litter brother and Aoife is their Mum. While he was staying, my peeps took him for a fun morning out in the woods near where we live, with our Crybbe to show him the best sniffing places.

Here they are setting off up the path into the woodland. As it is not really Spring yet, there is not much to see in the way of flowers and even the trees are still bare of leaves but it does mean that the creatures who live in the woods are easier to see - especially when they come to the feeding station.

This grey squirrel was keeping out of the way up the tree as Frankie had his eye on him and he loves to chase the squirrels if he gets the chance. They are always too quick but he keeps trying to catch one.

                                  This one was coming to steal the birds' food from the feeder!

                                             There were some pretty birds there too.

                                                              Like this nuthatch

But the boys were not interested in watching the birds like the peeps - they wanted to have a good sniff and a run around so off they went again.

                                                     Come on peeps - time to go!

                                                       Looking for more squirrels.

                                    Oh no - the peeps saw more birds to photograph!.

                                                                Are you coming?

                                         What do you mean nearly time to go back home?

                                         We haven't had time to read half these messages.

                       And I'm sure to be able to catch that squirrel with his back turned!

    But there were no squirrels harmed on the boys' walk in Brayton Barff that morning :-)

And one more photo of my handsome Uncle Frankie after a good bath and tidy up.
