I got up this morning to let the chickens out and found my Croc-alikes were gone.
I spotted them about 10 ft up the garden, and after recovering them found the heel
strap had been gnawed through, big bite radious so not a cat, or rat more likely a
fox or one of the rare visits we get from a badger.
Feeding
I use pine cones hung inverted on a cord and press softened suet or lard into the gaps
the insect eaters (which have "soft" beaks) love them, I also add ground nuts and chopped
sunflower hearts. There are Blackbirds still taking the small black grapes from under the porch
along with a couple of Black Caps (male and female) talking to Roger yesterday about these birds
when a Sparrow Hawk hurtled through the gardens taking a young starling.

Blimey Rod, would have to be a brave badger to take on a croc

The genuine Crocs live in 1/2" of water just inside the awning
