Shrew activity

Monday 3 June 2013

Some great views of a Water Shrew hunting for food. Not had the opportunity to study at any length before but it was diving down to the bed of the pond and continued into the silt, completely disappearing at times. No idea what it was feeding on but there are freshwater shrimps and some tadpoles in the pond that I am aware of.
Best photo I could manage as it only seemed to be on the water surface when in shadow.

Photographing the buzzard was somewhat easier!
