Hi Nic

Thank goodness for Digger (& her feather) yet again, let’s hope all your visitors (& any offspring they may have) find safe havens for winter & make it to next year to bring happiness to you for years to come.

Pete & little friend have made fleeting visits this week, both now splendidly turned out in full pigeon feather uniform & seem to have learned a little caution & that it’s not really good to get too close to people however nice they may appear.

Frank slightly in disgrace as he’s found a source of baby fieldmice & after he happily let us have the first 3 he brought in we decided enough was enough & his catflap is now set at out only. He has to wait to be let in – provided his mouth is empty. He brings them in unharmed & is unperturbed at being shut in the kitchen while we capture & liberate the tinies but it’s not nice for us or them. The last time he appeared with one at the flap he went away & returned too quickly to have made a meal of the poor thing, think he put it down to play with & it took off at the speed of sound. Hope so. No lip licking either which says a lot re eating.

Wallflowers planted, an amazing burgundy Cosmos bought for £1.99 at Lidl, all I need now is a patch of grass somewhere to attract the hogs to forage next year. Still working on how & where that’ll be.
