Duck-duck and Sooty 11/03/2014

Duck-duck and Sooty were nowhere to be seen this morning when I arrived at the cottage, they roost on the top of the high poultry run at night and start grazing early in the morning.

It unknown for them not to be there waiting to be fed so after feeding everyone else I went for walk along the Burn and over to our neighbours farm but on the way back I found the fresh pile of feathers that had been Duck-duck. It is most likely that she was caught by a fox, there is still no sign of Sooty but I have to assume that she was also caught.

A very sad day, the pair of them, mother and daughter were great characters.
