A Walk on the Wild Side

Well, we had a couple of wildlife encounters today...unfortunately the first one resulted in a death...
Iain was feeding the rabbits in the barn when he stepped on something...a little baby hedgehog. Now I know we are trying to eradicate hedgehogs in the islands, but it is supposed to be through capture and rehoming to the mainland. Poor little thing.
Our resident buzzard appeared today, but despite Iain's best Simon King impression he only managed to get the picture below.
Meanwhile, now that our alpacas have settled in we have increased their field size, so they had a wander round to exlore their "extension". Took some more photos...also took some of our poor flock of hebridean sheep - think they are feeling a little neglected!

  1. Don't worry, when Hebridean sheep feel neglected they organise a mass break-out and cavort around the village in an abandoned way! They look pretty happy to me...
