A Watering Hole

We have moved the camera to a new position down by the wild pond:


This is this years cub having a drink. And it left this footprint in the sand:

Foxes have also been coming to drink:

And birds have been bathing during the day. There are an awful lot of Blackbirds here at the moment:

We dug this pond in less than three years ago. Prior to that there was no fresh water here or in the immediate surrounding areas, the ground being either porous chalk or shingle. Goodness knows where the badgers used to go to drink but, wherever it was, life is surely a little easier for them now.
