Actually bruin refers to brown bears but I couldn’t resist. I’ve been concerned about our drought conditions as it has decimated the wild berry crop, a favourite for bears at this time of year. However this mother and cub look to be in very good shape with long shiny fur and seemingly quite portly. They came by for a quick visit but weren’t very interested in the few remaining walnuts. All our fruit is picked so they moved off to the next feeding station.
