Three actually and they appear to be youngsters (at least they all look like females, grey). They are skipping around the grass across the road and now and then on my front lawn simply revelling in joie de vivre. They run in their inimitable way and find whatever to eat on the lawn.
Why and whence I cannot say but so good to see them .
