Is all wildlife friendly?
As you will know, we pride ourselves on our wildlife friendliness. But is all wildlife as friendly as we’d like? We know that our local badgers have a liking for the occasional tulip bulb – OK, have a liking for a LOT of tulip bulbs – but have they now forsaken vegetarianism for a liking for a bit of flesh and blood?
Over the past few nights there’s been a lot of ground disturbance around the duck house. So we dug out the night vision camera and here’s the result.
Fortunately, we don’t think he was after the ducks, maybe a mouse or three, but I can imagine the consternation in the hutch.
The sharp-eyed among you will have noticed that the dates on the pics are a bit in the wrong order, but it makes a better story that way. We’ve now moved the hutch a few yards and the latest pics suggest that the ducks are quite safe, but we’ll make sure they are safely in bed every night for a while!
