What a difference a week makes
Ok, that would make a poor song title but it works in the field of our little Springwatch! After the joy of seeing the young woodpecker I thought disaster had struck a few days later when over at the stables I found a youngster dead. It had flown into the window of the barn.
The good news is that either it was a different nest or our family had two as this weekend another youngster appeared - yippee!!! Come on little Woody, you can do it!!!
We've had another new arrival on Saturday night when we found a Muntjac fawn in the garden. The female is leaving her safe in our garden while she goes out and finds food. It's nice that our garden is seen as a safe place for the little thing.
We woke up on Sunday to find that in addition to the fawn, the male and female were laid out asleep on the lawn - so it must be safe for them all. Buggy was out for a walk on Saturday night and met the female. She stood her ground for about five minutes and then soiled herself and ran in at a rate of knots!!!
Also, more good news. Moises has shoes again as he's on the mend.
