A Close Shave

Just had an ‘incident’, the blackbird chick decided to make a break for it, flew across the garden onto the top of one of the water butts.

What it didn’t bet on was the cat, who was there like a streak of lightning and actually had it for a moment.

The parent blackbirds kicked up a massive fuss, which succeeded in drawing the attention of our stupid but loveable cat, and the chick got away.

Douglas however has returned to the scene, and is convinced that the chick is hiding by the water butt somewhere.

It isn’t. 🙂

Just as I thought!!

Perfect timing!! Just as I finished the last post, what should hop out from the ivy than a blackbird chick.

I tried to sneak up on it to take a picture, but it was too quick for me. I managed to catch it disappearing into the fir tree.
