All this sunny weather is beginning to affect our wildlife. Not only are our reservoirs, rivers and wetland areas drying out - the animals are also starting to go a little bit crazy.

Keith O'Brien in North Wales snapped this rabbit attempting to go head to head with a large sheep. As expected the rabbit lost.

Charge!

Meanwhile, Dilwyn Lloyd came across a squirrel taking time out of its busy schedule to catch a few rays:

Christian Roberts encountered a stoat recently on the banks of the River Conwy darting in and out of the rocks and seaweed. This is an unusual spot to find a stoat but perhaps it's developed a taste for seafood?

Keep your photos coming in. I'm currently working on new butterfly picture gallery featuring some of your best snaps which will be up on the website later today.
