These days we’re all used to seeing the drama of the life-or-death struggles between large mammalian predators and their prey, all in high definition, and from the comfort of our own living rooms.
But if you’re very lucky, similar spectacles are to be seen, albeit on a smaller scale, here on our own ‘doorstep’. Bexley Wildlife is very pleased to have been given permission by Richard Spink to publish his exciting series of photographs, taken at Crossness in March this year, of a Brown Rat getting the better of a Weasel, after they both ‘fell out of a hedge’ on Footpath 2. These pictures first came to our attention through the Crossness Friends Group’s newsletter, for which we thank Reserve Manager Karen Sutton.
Here’s a taster, but for all 5 pictures click here:
