Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year.
Hope it's full of good things.
This fella is a 'red legged partridge', not a British native.
It's amazing what you learn on Christmas day.

Visitors in the garden

We live next to fields belonging to an animal rescue organisation.
We suspected that we may be having visitors because a hole had
been eaten in the hedge, close cropped grass and the real give
away - sheep droppings.
My OH went out for a smoke about 5.30 tonight and was
greeted by this.........look carefully..........I didn't use a flash as we
didn't want a stampede. There were probably about 15 sheep.
The wheelie bin handles can just be seen at the front of the photo.
They were all over the back garden literally.
They just stood and looked at him until he moved then wandered
off slowly back the way they'd come.

Death in the garden

A surprise find in the garden. Two beautiful but dead thrushes outside
the kitchen window. No blood or anything nasty. The conclusion we came
to was that they had flown in to the kitchen window or the window above it
and killed themselves. One yes, but two? Very sad.
