There were two dead bodies on the grass this morning. Actually it was one dead body and a pile of feathers!
Something had pulled one of the frogs out of the water and left mangled remains for the flies. Nice!
The pile of feathers belonged to a Great Tit. It was near a nest box which had been in a tree some feet away. Quite a strong predator had attacked the box and killed the bird, plucked it and disposed of the remains. Could be a squirrel but we'll never know!
We are attending the Bird Fair at Rutland in a couple of weeks so I will investigate/purchase a camera for the garden. Lots of things visit us in the night and I want to see them!
A lovely daytime visitor was this beautiful Bullfinch. It has started popping in but doesn't stay long.
