Found a ducks nest that had been predated by what looked like a raccoon. Footprints all over close by. Sad, but part of the food chain.
And a pair of Canada geese are sitting on the first egg laid here on a roof of a cottage by the lake. Discovered yesterday by one of the people working there as he was working on the shutters near by. The pair just sat and stood their ground. The male hissed and the female kept sitting. But as she moved a wee bit he saw one egg under her. A very strange place indeed for canada geese to nest at. But thankfully this roof is not that high.
And feathers l'm finding all over near the merlins, of the casualties of those living near this nest.
