Last year I kept a tally of how many rodents our cats, Tigger and Fluffy caught.
Fluffy managed a haul of nine mice.
Tigger caught, killed and ate twenty.
Plus a wood pigeon, a rat (brought in to the house alive, oh joy!), a blackbird and a magpie.
Tonight Angela and I were eating our supper when I heard a sound I recognised; Fluffy calling to let us know he had a mouse.Various noises off occurred, and when we next looked in the hall, this is what was left...
The champagne isn't mine by the way.
It is something of a tradition among birders to kick the year list off with a New Year's Day birding trip.
Today 7 of our birding group met for our regular Tuesday stroll which coincided with the first day of the New year.
23 species were seen, with superb views of Green Woodpecker and brief glimpses of Kingfisher as the highlights.
A lovely morning, sunny and bitterly cold.
Perfect birding weather.
