A Spanish Terrapin Just Peed On Me!

I was down at the river modifying and moving my Kingfisher perch and on the way back Wally spotted something in the long grass.

It was a Spanish Terrapin (often referred to as a Spanish Turtle). It was fairly large with its shell about 25cm long. As it was heading towards the road I decided to relocate it back to the river bank.

I picked it up and it let its bladder go, all over me and I know smell like rotten fish. I released it back at the river bank and it hurried into the water.

With regards to the Kingfisher perch, as the river it starting to get lower and the dry out begins, there are a lot of small fish shoaling in various shallow sections. The perch has been relocated to an area where the Kingfishers have a choice of side. I did see a Kingfisher this morning in the area so hopefully they will start using the perch photos soon!
