DescriptionThere were 3 of the older chicks feeding around the garden this afternoon. After chsing each other around the climbing frame of the dead azalea branches, and bouncing around two flew off, but this one settled on the shed roof in the sun to take a nap. Sadly, the next morning I was having breakfast when there was an explosion of fur in the camelia and the long haired black cat dropped out with a baby sparrow mostly in its mouth. It dropped the body behind the shed I suspect, as it was not visible when the little sob appeared on the fence as it fled my wrath. My first thought was to break out the bow and kebab it, but that is not really me. It seems no matter how often I soak that cat with the garden sprayer it keeps coming back. So I have invested in ultrasound barrier technology so that if the cat jumps in, it gets a serious ear ache as it runs away again. See if that works. In the meantime the sparrows, robin, blackbird, collared doves and blue tits are still coming to feed. Let us hope safely from now on.
