A Bountiful Autumn...

On a short visit to Wales Prunella was delighted to watch the local wildlife enjoying a delicious meal of freshly foraged food...

Robin Redbreast hopping through the prickly tangled bramble bush was particularly good at reaching the ripest blackberries twisting his head through almost 180 degrees...

A happy grazing bunny hopping over to say "Hi!" to Prunella...

A brief glimpse of a small wren searching for small insects and spiders...

The sprightly Sally Squirrel swinging from the branches of the old oak tree collecting fresh acorns to eat and store ensuring a plentiful supply of food to last her through those cold Winter months...

A colourful Chaffinch snacking on small insects and seeds...

Last but not least, the comical Pied Wagtail constantly on the move, woohoo... 

 It will soon be October, a time for pumpkins and spooky Halloween happenings!

Until then, keep smiling, stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.

Thank you kindly for your visit.
We dearly appreciate your comments and hope you had as much fun reading Prunella's Blog as we had writing it.   
Happy Blogging!


  1. Well Prunella, you certainly had an exciting encounter with a variety of wildlife. I hadn't realized that Robins were so fond of blackberries, so I especially enjoyed that sequence. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  2. What lovely shots of these pretty creatures! I love the gifs :)

  3. Wonderful pictures of all the critters. Great capture of the squirrel in the tree branches and I love the Robin in the berries.

  4. Hi Prunella,
    thank you for sharing those awesome Autumnpictures! It is my favorite time of the year!
    Have a happy time, take care,
    Love and hugs, Claudia xo

  5. Prunella the gifs are so great! I like it!
    In Germany we say: "Häschen hüpf" - I rembered this by the photos from the bunny.
    Oh yes October comes, I like it spooky and creepy ;-)
    Greetings and hugs from me to you

  6. Wonderful captures of all your woodland friends, Prunella! Each one is more charming than the last! Everyone is fattening up for winter. I confess, I have been, too :) Sending hugs xo Karen

  7. W o n d e r f u l photos of really cute woodland critters.
    Your bird photos never cease to amaze me. The Robin with the blackberries, for example, that light, those colours... ♥

  15. Delightful images Prunella, especially the pied wagtail. What type of video did you use? We have a willy wagtail that flits and dashes around the garden. His song is always happy. You would love him.

    Have a sweet October! Hugs! ♥

  22. Ooohhhhhh ... really great to see Prunella :-)
    The red breast is one of the nicest birds to see and the winter kink could also take a beautiful photo. I'm jealous of your pictures of the squirrel. These are also really fun :-))))))))) The tick is also very beautifully photographed. I have no idea how you did this with the photo's of the mercury cake but the last 2 pictures are really untowardly made :-)

    Regards, Helma

  23. Hi Prunella - love to see your photos again!
    Your Robin Redhead and the happy jumping bunny stole my heart <3 Your Pied Wagtail made me smile <3

  24. Hi Prunella. Im pleased you enjoyed my pictures of Skiathos. you will be happy to learn that our hired Jimny proved just the job for those unmade tracks in the mountains. That poor old wagtail of yours must be tired out by now, all that running around. Take care.

  25. Thank you for your nice words about my sparrow !!
    Have a happy new week, dear Prunella !!

  26. Beautiful photos, Prunella! I love the bunny and the great videos!!!! Kisses, my friend.
