I saw wild animals

In cultivated fields near schonefeld we saw a team of deer apparently eating grass. This was 3 days ago.

 

Today I saw a lonely deer on the train tracks at 11.00 in the night staring at the tram. It was really beautiful just like bambi :)

 

So I wonder what kind of animals have others spotted here, foxes? deer? wild boars? And which time of the year? I never saw deer in summer, but

it looks like I will see a lot in winter.

Standing on our balcony in a little Dorf, I saw a badger in the field across the street.

I saw a ten foot chicken walking into a steakhouse. That was weird as hell.

There's been a flouncing badger recently sighted.

In Berlin you can see often foxes, wild-boars, squirrels and gazillions of bunnies.

 

P.S., Wild-boars can be very dangerous, stay away from them.

A sparrowhawk on the bike shed eating a pigeon. Grey herons. Jays. I had never seen any of them while growing up in Wales.

 

Also cranes flying over (ditto).

 

And a mole (sadly dead, strangely smaller than one would imagine).

The only mole I ever saw was dead too, I always thought they were bigger too, was very surprised at how tiny it was.

 

Apart from that, I've seen loads of boars, hedgehogs, weasels, foxes, deer, badgers, nutria, squirrels, racoons, newts, a few snakes, rabbits, various mouse species (not to mention loads of rats on the train tracks...), herons, storcks (and countless birds of prey that I couldn't determine)

 

There's probably more on my list, but I can't recall them right now.

A collegue of mine hit a wild boar with his car on a Autobahn in Bavaria. The boar was dead afterwards and the car had become scrap metal.

I caught our dog chasing a mole round the garden in Summer, I managed to catch it and release it far far away

 

This little guy visited our garden last night, I thought they were supposed to be hibernating?

They are supposed to be hibernating. It may be sick or too small to survive. But sometimes they do just wakt up if their nest is disturbed.

We saw a dead siebenschlaefer last year, apparently that's an edible dormouse - it was really cute.

He "looked" quite healthy and was moving around quite quickly. We put some cat food and water out for him.

I saw racoons on my mother's deck and heard them under the living room floor.

The cutest visitor we've had in the garden was this guy (or gal)

Probably nothing to worry about. We have a ton of them around here in the summer and fall. So cute.
