When you grow to know an individual wild animal, you grow to know the character of the creature and begin to fully appreciate all the animals of that species on a whole new level. That’s what happened with me and Milligan the hedgehog.
I can see the same with Ryan Mottram (twitter handle: @CWWRyan) with Flash the swan. He has known Flash for eight years. A truly charming sixteen-year-old bird, Flash is partnered with the elegant Snow.
Ryan’s love of these birds made me want to know them better, I hope you gain the same joy from them too.
The following photograph is one of Ryan’s, you can find more details on his blog here: http://cheshirewildlife101.blogspot.co.uk/
