Predators On The Hunt
Most birds are now nesting and the predators are on the prowl.
The Crows are highly active and hunting out any nests and eggs they can grab.
Duke is very wary of the crows, and had to race out of the moat when a crow landed on the nest with the intention of getting at the eggs. He is pretty agile and certainly younger than Penny, he was out of the moat and at the nest in a flash. Shortly after, another Crow landed nearby with a stolen ducks egg, and was joined for a meal. Pity the poor ducklings when they start to hatch !
