The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

Like Diamonds

duck feather shining like diamondsSparkling like it was covered with diamonds, this feather was a beautiful, but sombre symbol of the demise of a duck, probably our scuba diving duck.   The guineas sounded the alarm near the dam just after 10.30 and I saw a fox running off when the dog got close .  I don’t know when the duck was killed, but there were some fox prints visible in the wet sand at the edge of the dam.  I took this photo of the Little Grebe last week.
