I ventured out into the little alley at the rear of the chateau this morning to clear up any debris left in the wake of Doris. As it turned out there wasn't much but there was the rather sad sight of a lot of woody feathers and a few bloodied remains. A very recent victim of my visiting moggies I think :( . That is the second one this winter in the same alley. Unfortunately the cats can hunt my alley almost unseen but it is very tempting for the birds as it does not see much footfall and wild enough to host some tempting morsels.

Toady, I confess myself to being somewhat south of gruntled. For some days now I have noticed whole blossoms from the 2-varieties cherry tree lying on the lawn and put them down to a small spat up among the boughs by some of the many and various ornithos who grace said tree from time to time.
Today was when the gruntle disappeared :grumpy:. A wood pigeon was happily perched high up, pecking off the blossoms and eating them with every appearance of deep joy.

Now I like woodies, I really do, but this is sheer abuse. Notwithstanding the fact that the brute, errr, bird, was much too high up for anyone lacking a drone to be able to harvest the fruit, it's still a liberty.
If it comes within scary stick reach of the lower boughs, then ........ :wife:. Pigeon and cherry pie sounds good :yummy:.

I felt much the same when I spotted my Sparrows munching happily on my plum blossom. Dark thoughts were harboured but within a day or two their attentions had wandered elsewhere and normality had been restored. :nod:
