    They are still hanging around, there were seven standing but two took off as moved near the window, they were on the roof of the house at 5 am, It took me a while to figure out what the clatter was. IMG_20180712_081133.jpg

    We have a massive crop of cooking apples . Hardly an eating apple. Good crop of pears , but a lot have fallen from the tree. Plums poor , and no damsons , which usually have lots on them.

    Greengage ?

    Were you afraid that the hedgehog might get caught by the cat ?

    A fine lump of a digger.
