And an Octopus


In a recent newspaper article someone proclaimed that as so many people live today in cities, their daily experience of seeing animals is limited to cats and dogs.

At best.

I wanted to check out a 24 hour period for my own experience.

A flock of sparrows, several species of finch, a robin, a crow, a buzzard, a blackbird, four herrons (one which didn't fly away as i passed, some trout (in a river not a shop) two horses (without policeman) a hare's bum (it was diving into a ditch) a deer and six cats.

A short trip up to the village would have added llamas and Cows (they don't run the village shop but live on the farm outside).

Not a single dog though!

Oh, and an octopus.
