I still have my head down & tail up with our Finnish helper trying to tame the undergrowth. So there’s been no time for socialising or day trips..arh!!
Lately I’ve had the mini chookettes out free-ranging. The other day all was going to plan until we found a Sparrow Hawk hiding in the herb garden right under our noses. All hell broke loose as the Hawks cover was blown, the Mother Hen was screeching & the Hawk was by now stuck in some chicken wire. I made a lunge for the Hawk but it finally freed itself. What a stunning and smart bird, it was hiding right next to a sparrows nest full of babies; dinner no doubt!
Also while at the Hobart tip shop, we found the chooks a groovy new retro nesting box..Super!!
