I think it was a large cat but obviously no colour was showing, and it seemed to be facing the feeder cage, about 6 - 7 ft away. It was right away from any hiding place, very conspicuous, and very still.
Watched it for about 2 mins, trying to see what it actually was and what it was doing .
Fetched the torch and it had gone .
If it was a fox it was a small one, if it was a cat it was large.
It was quite puzzling and a little bit spooky. Very odd .......
All the other creepy crawlies and animals that interact with your garden and the countryside
If the scary stick is not handy waving your arms and hissing loudly often works. You must make it clear that garden visits in the daytime are permitted.
