This tiny creature was curled up on the driveway and but for its little tail sticking out it would have been easy to either pass it by or step on it!
On closer inspection it seemed simply terrified to have found itself out on this expanse of road which must have seemed enormous from it’s perpective. More pressing perhaps was its vulnerability from cars or cats so I tentatively encouraged it to head for the grass verge.
Hopefully it recovered from its fright and had a peaceful evening by the side of the Bronnie Burn. I had so nearly passed by without seeing it. It made me wonder how many things we don’t see even when they are under our nose!
