I have recently been working a different photography project.
I have been making some small mammal homes out of thin branches criss crossed over a depression in the ground and covered with turf, this is to enable me to photograph these amazing little creatures in the wild.
I don't believe in trapping animals and photographing in a tank because it must cause them a lot of stress, and they may be feeding young which could suffer without regular feeding.
I have already seen Bank Voles, a Wood Mouse and yesterday a Common Shrew coming out of one of these homes for sunflower seeds and peanuts.
I have taken a couple of images so far and you can see one in my Latest Images gallery
