Of Scatological interest...

 The first hemerocallis is out! Summer is officially here! yes, I know, we have had Midsummers Day, and the solstice, the evenings are drawing in, but hey, it is now summer!

While out looking at the length of the grass, checking which flowers are now out, admiring the fresh lush growth of weeds, I noticed the evidence of an intruder in our garden. They had left their calling card...

now, I am not in the habit of taking photos of poo, but this one intrigued me. It looks too small for pussy cat, does not look like herbivore, I suspect it is too big for hedgehog... any ideas? Hmmm... anyone know what a sparrowhawk's poo looks like? I know we get visits from a bird of prey, though I haven't seen them... A pair of wings got left, complete with pectoral girdle... Nothing else, just wings and girdle, picked clean...


the daisy is there for scale!


Thoughts would be welcome.

I really want to be able to tell you what the poo is, but I am afraid I have no idea..... it looks a similar size to a Canada goose poo to me!!! I loved this blog post by the way (is that because I spend too much time with a three year old and so poo's are a frequent topic of conversation?) x

I've seen a sparrowhawk in the garden in the past mamma, we certainly get visits from them!
