Just a short post as it is a lovely day and I am busy in the garden but two rather sad tales to tell.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a photograph of two white wild ducks who had already paired up and were happily setting up home at the side of the beck. Sadly they have both been found dead with their heads bitten off, but not eaten. We are blaming the fox but, of course, poor old fox gets blamed for everything and it may not be that.
And sad to report that my oldest hen, a crested bantam, was dead in the hen house this morning. She was at least twelve years old and has been failing for some time but seems to have died peacefully overnight. Always sad to see them go but at least I know she has had a long and happy life.
Enjoy this wonderful weather.
