Curbside Carnage

So I thought 'd give you all an update on the wildlife on my way to work, it's something I used to email my city slicker friends about on a daily basis...however this morning there was much less 'living' wildlife than one would imagine...instead we had the following squish...ed fauna:
6 x bunnies (large and small)
2 x magpies
1 x pheasant

I also regularly see badgers (sorry badge), foxes, grouse and the occasional dear. Birds aplenty including the starlings nesting in my guttering..cats also supply us with mice, rats, shrews, spiders and worms

Oh the joys of living in the countryside...and now its raining so you can add slugs to the above...


**Oh forgot to say that's its my first month anniversary of blogging and it was my birthday last week as well...so I think stickies (cakes for the uninitiated) are on everyone else and you should all send me a bottle of champagne to celebrate!

We get quite a lot of wildlife here in the city - of the scavanging variety mainly. We rarely see roadkill though, maybe they're more used to cars here?

*puts on sue voice* Nooooo! Not the badgers!!

I'm in mourning. I would wear black but well, I already am.

I don't know how you can celebrate in the face of such a tragedy.

Belated Happy Birthday wishes Jules! You never told me!

No champers though I'm afraid, my budget barely stretches to a bottle of Blossom Hill.

Shame on you for upsetting badgie so. Poor Badgie!

Not much roadkill around here either, although there are foxes. It makes me worry about my cat (she lives with my parents) as they have been known to attack.

Oh and congratulations on 1 month blogging. A mighty achievement I feel.
