She is incredibly elusive and emerges briefly to snatch her food before disappearing into the undergrowth to escape from other foxes and badgers who chase her for the food.
Fortunately, Becbla knew me when she was sighted and would come very close to take food from me. Gradually she lost sight in both eyes and became dependent on me for food. She has a sighted male companion who I suspect is one of her offspring.

|Hose clip from the vehicle?|
I am unsure what the liquid is, though I took the precaution of washing So Cruise's feet when we got back home. Care should be taken negotiating the effluent whether by vehicle or on foot as it is very slippery. Even if harmless, the operator is responsible for the discharge and cleaning up the highway.

For consistency and comparison of weather records, the Met Office nominates three month cycles, each commencing on the first of the month.
Astronomers utilise celestial events such as equinoxes and solstices with autumn occurring this year on September 22nd.
Phenology, or the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events, dictates that autumn is here when oaks and beech trees start to tint and the ripening of sloes and elderberries is evident etc.
Well, the sloes and elderberry are everywhere in the combe, so I stick with the first of September as the true start of autumn - my favourite season
