They're never gory. I wouldn't send anything that had blood or guts spilling out. I just carried on from when I sent the pic of the badger asking if he knew what it was and he thought it was a rat.  ;D  To be fair, it was on its back. Anyway, back to pics of fluffy and cute living creatures.

Another dead animal 'psycho' here :)  only because it allows you to look in detail at an animal, in particular the plumage of birds.
So many paths yet to walk, so little time left

I won't post it here as some people may not like it but can send in PM if people want, but when I walked the Norfolk Coast path, I came across a colony of seals and noticed one which had died. It had rope wrapped around its neck and tail. The smell was awful, not a pretty sight but I was fascinated.  I wouldn't say it was a highlight of the trail but I will never forget it. Seen lots of dead squirrels which have been caught by dogs and once even saw a Magpie attacking and killing a baby woodpecker that had fallen from its nest. Maybe a new topic should be started but with a warning....... Crikey, I am becoming a psycho.

Is it wrong that I send photos of animal corpses to my son on my travels? I'm too slow with moving animals lol. I have an impressive collection including a mummified rat, a flat frog and a badger. The badger was sad of course, but on a return trip I was actually excited when I spotted its claws and teeth in the same spot a year later when with my son. I wish we'd grabbed a claw as a keepsake.


OK, I'm sounding a bit of a psycho. I really am not, in fact I'm an animal lover, but just thought it was a bit humorous to send them to my teenage son to remind him what he is missing. He certainly wouldn't be interested in the view. He hasn't been as impressed as I thought he would be though.






Dead Animals
Yum!!

Walking through an alleyway today came across a guy putting dead pheasants and rabbits from the back of his van into a bucket... roadkill, feed for the badgers! A new one for me.

Walked out to Dales Voe this morning.
On one side of the road is the Oil Rig Decommissioning yard.







On the other side of the road I heard some familiar whistling.





I concentrated on the best side of the road.

Amazing photos Watershed, did they know you were there or did they just ignore your presence?

Aww poor seal. That sounds horrid. Completely forgot I posted in here. My son suffered a bad accident at school involving an eye so been distracted with hospital stay and appointments. Pm me the pic if you want.  :)

Thanks Guys.


The wind was blowing in the right direction so they didn't smell me. I hid behind a road barrier so they weren't aware I was there.


This is them in the water before they came ashore.
