Well I never!

I've had a few unusual sighting this week. First I spotted a common lizard running across the road just down the road from my house - I've never seen a lizard before on the Wolds.
Then a customer came into the gallery and said they had spotted a roe deer running around in circles with it's head to the ground sniffing the ground. (Surely this behaviour of the male scenting a female should be over by now?)
And then, while watching the badgers from my hide I heard a nightjar calling. A nightjar on the Wolds - that's exciting. Click here to read all about nightjars on the RSPB's website & to hear the strange 'frog-like' call.
