The colour Red...



Prunella's gorgeous red rose bush is in full bloom and it's fragrance is pure perfection...





 Red is also for Ed the Red Kite.
Prunella spotted him preening himself and surveying his territory from a high perch in the Old Oak tree...








Mmm... looks as though he's spotted something and it's not Prunella...
 

 He's busy watching the activity in Prunella's garden.
Woody Wood Pigeon is having a drink unaware he is being spied on from up above...



Feeling a little peckish he checks to see if the bird table is unoccupied...
 


Great, time for a quick snack...



Sadly he was pipped at the post by Prunella's dear friend Dee Dee the Dove...




She looks ill at ease. Maybe she's aware of Ed the Red Kite up above.
No it's not that, it's something down below.
Prunella rubs her eyes as she can't believe what she's seeing. Feeding from around the bottom of her bird table is a rat...





Oh dear a rotten rat, not something that Prunella wants scurrying around her pretty little garden even though he is kinda cute!
"Not to worry," cries Ed and with a sudden swoosh the chase is on...




Prunella hasn't seen hide nor hair of that rotten little rascal Roland Rat since.
Who knows what has become of him.





Until the next time stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.
xXx

  3. Wonderful critters, and stunning action!

  4. Oh, to see a wonderful bird like the Red Kite... AND to be able to take such great photos of it! I hope he took care of the rat. :)
    Prunella's red roses are wonderful, but I believe that in reality they look even more gorgeous. Their colour looks like the red I never manage to reproduce well with a camera.
    Thank you for the lovely photos! Have a happy Sunday! xx

  9. This was a fun and hilarious post Prunella, I enjoyed it very much. Ed is a handsome bird and good to have in the garden, so that Ronald the Rat won't cause too much damage. No wonder Prunella looks so smiling happy! It could not be another way in the middle of her amazing red roses! Hugs Prunella💕

  10. What a funny lovely story with a dramatic point -
    By the way: since I read "Dr. Doolittle", I like rats.
    Have a magical day :-)

  13. Goodness me -
    What fab photos of the red kite. BTW, I hope he was preening rather than pruning :-)
    They are rather mealy-mouthed when you hear there plaintive cry and I have yet to see them get the better of a pigeon. Wish they would and eradicte the flying rats. From my garden anyways. No such luck.
    Love the continued exploits of your little doll.
    And your rose is perfect. Not a blemish nor a bite.

    1. Thank you for the correction Joanna, it did make me giggle :) I love watching them fly overhead. Sadly we saw one laying on the side of the road dead the other day, obviously hit by a vehicle while trying to gather some carrion off the road.
      Have a wonderful weekend in your part of the woods :)
