The day started brightly enough, though it was probably a sign of the imminent strong winds which have been forecast across central Europe.
Jude went outside and soon ran back in asking me to stop everything and come and look. Our bird feeder had been destroyed… again! (This happened last year too). Pieces were everywhere – the furthest being about 25 yards down the fields (to the left of the right hand bush in the first image).
It was at this point that I’d wished I’d left the Trail cam pointing in the same direction as yesterday to capture what happened. However, the culpritS have been identified…
Firstly the one I’m calling 3 pointer, because he has 3 prongs on the top of his antlers.
Immediately after the above, there was another video with sounds of bashing and crashing. Here’s his partner in crime – 2 pointer.
In the midst of this mayhem, a fox trotted across a few times, but this was the best video.
One of them obviously had something stuck on its antlers as it came back into view trying to get rid of whatever it was. There’s no tree or bush to the right where it’s standing.
Last, but not least 3 pointer returns to check on his handiwork…
