Is nowhere safe?

My sweet H demonstrated how to use the camera yesterday, whilst hanging from the velux in the office at the top of the house, as I yelled “partridges” at him from the other window. I believe the two little blobs in front of our garden gate to be members of this species, although the limits of the zoom leave this open to debate. Their prospects were not that good, because kitty was on our side of the gate, and a few of the hunting fraternity were on the other, guns loaded, lurking in the hedge as usual.

By the time that I had run down the stairs, the birds had flown, but I didn't hear any shots.

I am hoping that there was room for two when they finally found their pear tree...
