Someone or some thing has been plundering J’s compost bins in the dead of night. We’ve tried various ways to gather some incriminating evidence, like spreading flour to try and get a clear footprint and prodding little piles of droppings in the style of Tonto of Lone Ranger fame. ‘Still warm, they are only two hours ahead, Kemu Sabi!’ (or words to that effect). All to no avail. We speculated that it might be a badger, a fox, a jackal or even Mehmet from down the road!!
In the end, with J off to the US for a family visit, I ordered up a ‘hunter’s camera’ for her to pick up and bring back. It purported to operate by day and night, so it seemed like a great way to catch our interloper – and so it has proved.
I can see myself having a lot of fun with this ‘big boy’s toy’!
