Morning Dog Walk: A Gaggle of Mongooses

I take a camera along on my Dog Walks to bring you some of the sightings that I see on my morning walks, these photos are rarely going to be great quality as its hard enough keeping an energetic Dog entertained and get close enough to anything. They also help me identify where species are so that I can plan to return.

Whilst walking I heard a quarrel (collective noun) of Sparrows fled a tree with alarm calls at high volume. This was out of sight and decided to sit and wait, it could of simply been a Cat but I hoped for something a little more wild.

Soon enough on a distant bank I could hear leaves rustling….but so could Wally! It didn’t take long until one came out into the open, an Egyptian Mongoose. I quickly managed to get this long distance snap before they spotted us and ran for cover. This gave me the opportunity to see all 3 of the Gaggle (another collective noun) as they fled.
