Thornhillhead, North Devon

Quite a surprise this morning, Brown Hare in the garden close to the house. We see them quite frequently in local fields and have often followed one in the car until a gateway, but on the lawn is a first for me after 20 years here.

Leucistic palmate newt theis afternoon in our garden pond. We had a golden newt tadpole 2 or 3 years back - this might be the same individual returning.

Comet NEOWISE

This isn't strictly wildlife but we have the best comet in years currently visible low in the NE before dawn, best viewed between 2 and 3.30 am. Visible to the unaided eye, nice in binoculars. It should be visible for the next week or two. For further details and finder charts see -
