I could hear a strange noise in the hall, when I investigated I found a rather smug Taffy with a Southern Hawker in his mouth!! It was still alive, so after a quick wrestle I managed to get it away from him.

After putting it on a flower I left it to recover - unfortunately the sun has gone in and there is a cold wind blowing. Just popped out and it is still alive, but not going anywhere. Poor thing!

Update: I've just had another peek and it's tucked itself right down in a corner (after I moved it to an old, not used, bird table) - crossing my fingers! Smile

Thank you everyone who has visit and left c&c's. Smile

Thanks everyone! Smile

Taffy's Little Present this morning was..................a very large, very dead mouse! But just to add to the 'character' of this great prize, he'd wedged it under the radiator in the porch. Tongue

Hi Leon, yes - Taffy is a gorgeous ginger tom. The dragonfly eventually flew away! Smile
