The ground was covered in tiny little frogs, I had to watch my step as I didn't want to crush them. Ducks and ducklings floated casually on the still waters and I saw rabbits, deer, coots and more. It seemed like the whole of nature was just chilling out on a sunny day.
I don't know what the little guy in the second picture is, any ideas?

I think he's a field vole, very cute looking wee beastie,

It's lovely when nature reclaims the land and is not long in doing so.
