Wildlife identification!

I thought I would post a short blog for this weekend....Like many of you right now, we are also "enjoying" some much-missed rain and I was calculating that it must have been at least 6 weeks since we had our last shower!! Before the weather broke however, we had some interesting visitors recently.....the first of which posed a bit of a challenge in identification but I am sure that some of you may be able to come up with the answer..............

The following "visitor" is even more of a challenge and I look forward to hearing from those of you who recognise this little creature...........................

Armed with my camera the other day, I also caught up with some of the Easter-Wood herd in their paddocks before the rain came................
One of my favourite's...Easter-Wood Diego, from EP Cambridge Samson who is owned by Wellground Alpaca Stud!

Easter-Wood Latte and Easter-Wood Diego busy doing what they do best...eating!!

This is Fedora who is a charming, experienced mum who has given us 4 lovely females to date!

Be back again soon.


  1. Hope that is not your dinner the creepy crawly is heading towards!

    Lovely photos - I'm trying to remember if Latte was that very lovely one with the beautifully coloured, fine, crimpy fleece we saw when we were over that time?

    Diego looks good!

  2. It's a Great Spotted Woodpecker :-) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Spotted_Woodpecker

    Great pictures. Have a nice weekend!

  3. It does look as though the little creature is heading for our dinner Rosemary. Latte is certainly the same one that you saw. He sure is a handsome boy!
