Wildlife update

We've had a pair of mallards hanging around the place for the last week or so. I'm slightly concerned that she's decided our fish pond is the ideal place for her ducklings to grow up. I'm sure I'll be able to find someone to come and rescue them if it happens.

(Today, I learned that it's not *our* ducks that GB objects to seeing in the field, it's *any* ducks.)

Jo's been doing very well on bunnies lately, although I fear that the one she got today (at least) had mixa: it was huddled pathetically in the corner of the field and made no attempt to escape. When she'd lost interest and I went to have a look, it did indeed have red eyes. That's the second I've seen with mixa in the last few days.

(Top top for anyone visiting us, or indeed anywhere else in the countryside: if you're driving along and see a sad-looking bunny in the road making no attempt to get out of your way, particularly if it has red eyes, you really are are doing it a kindness if you run it over. It's a horrible disease.)
