After a pleasant lunch on the balcony, watching and photographing some birds, I had a little time to kill before the football started. So off I went up the path behind our chalet. In a way, this was a little foolhardy, as the road has been cordoned off for 3 or 4 weeks, due to some (and by that I mean several tonnes) of loose rock above. However, my neighbour told me that it had been given the all clear, so it seemed like a change from walking by the river.
Now I often say that you never know what you are going to find, or see, on a walk and today was no exception. With all the snow around I was amazed to find a small skull, no bigger than 6 inches or 15cm long. It clearly had some sharp teeth, but I have no idea what it might have been. So if anyone out there can identify it for me, I’d be eternally grateful.
