I know my pets and their behaviours - most of the time, I hasten to add - so I knew there must have been something interesting to see outside. Often it is a bird coming near the window. This time it was a frog.
Excuse the filthy windows. We have a lot of salty rain which makes them greasy.
If the weather hadn't been so rank, Fergus surely would have gone outside for a closer inspection of Mr or Mrs Frog.
Not so much of a visitor, but our pheasant in residence. We see him most days, strutting about and pecking some delicacies from the soil. He's a lovely looking chap and I hope he's here to stay.
When he is 'alarmed' he scutters in between the bushes and I believe that is where his home is, if they have a home, that is. I don't want to go and look as I could disturb his peace and then he might find another home.
It's such a great feeling to be able to live in a place like this, where you have wildlife visitors and residents so close to home. Amazing !
