Lamb shoulder bones were on the menu again for Foxcam last night. We really are addicted to barbecued lamb shoulder.
The bones were gratefully cleaned up by our latest fox with the kink in its brush. It would be intriguing to know what caused the slight misshaping. I perhaps should say “is causing” because I had the feeling it looked a bit more pronounced than it originally did. That may be fanciful, though.
Most exciting, though, from our point of view, is that our very first visitor – even before bloody Tampon the cat wandered through – was a Hedgehog. These little darlings have been in drastic decline in recent years. Clearly many of them fall victim to traffic. Last year we watched one snuffling around our front garden so it was great to catch one on camera in our back garden.
It would be enjoyable to be able to put out some cat food for any passing Hedgehogs but with our neighbourhood wildlife extermination squad, what good would that do other than encourage the unwelcome cats?
