signs (of other animals)

fly tipping

fly tipping is a bit like cow tipping. with wings.

it’s not clear whether these are warnings to frogs or people. they could be outlines of previous incidents.

slow children and animals

a slow animal is a tortoise. children aren’t ever slow. unless it’s close to bedtime and you ask them to get in to bed quickly.

guineas on the loose

jane was busy doing a toy sale at preschool yesterday so i took the girls to the various curious Wellplace Zoo.
the place has free-range guinea pigs everywhere. esther counted 32 but i think there may have been some double counting as they kept running down little cut-throughs.

in addition to the guinea pigs and taxidermy (nothing is wasted!) they have a collection of fibre-glass dinosaurs !

expect lots of photos over the next few weeks (i’ll spread them out so we don’t have zoo animal overload).

young pheasants

motion blurred (because i was moving) sign warning of the danger of young pheasants. we only saw this photo after we’d cycled through about a hundred mad running pheasants on a road !

sheep crossing

here is the actual sheep, actually crossing its actual field.
