Old, but things that have happened round the corner from me...

I can't find a news article but...
Also, one year an overflow pipe for the pond sucked away 4 signets. They were presumed dead. Since, the pair have been very aggressive, and I don't blame them. Go with food or else!

@fashionfobie The chicken family hanging out near the library (the building behind the duck pond). It is quite quiet up there in the cactus garden and not many people wakl up there.

One of the kids and mum, the other was asleep next the the fence under me,

It has been two months since I last visited.
I haven't left the house apart from groceries and medical trips in that time. Anyway, took some pictures today, hardly any chickens today. I saved a dove from a cat. There were no people around today, carpark empty.
There was loads of rabbits and a tonne of young quakers!

Don't we get any pictures? All I see is you, you're blocking the birdies!

Ghost town,

The saddest sign in the world, heartbreaking to think we need a sign like that!!!

Looks like this guy lost an eye, he was pretty shy but wary of me, poor thing, he was sure happy with a little food, he was fair scrawny,

That is quiet. Poor animals, two entire months without you giving them the only live and attention they get. Will you be able to visit when you move? That sign is heartbreaking. Even more heartbreaking nobody seems to bother listening to it...

Those monk parakeets are beautiful! Any rabbit pictures? Anything down on the ponds?

There are people who are passionate about the park and make sure water and food is avail. It is a gem for us locals and some visitors like to join in and will take chopped vegetables, it´s nice to see :)

I think the cock could have been attacked in the park. By another chicken maybe? Or a cat.. cats are hungry too I guess :(
I saw some doves stuck in the old birdcage (I wish they would just lock it closed), and a cat was heading right for them and they were thrashing around in that cage, what a scene, I chased the cat down the hill. There are lots of people who take cat food in there for them.

Any rabbit pictures? Anything down on the ponds?
I got a bunch of rabbit snaps, and a video of a surprise visitor in the little top pond. I didn´t go down to the lake because I was trying to stay hidden in the trees, it´s more open down the bottom of the park.

Hiding from humanity?

I can´t imagine they will do that. I will send them an email regardless. They know that there are regulars who take it upon themselves to protect the animals so why pay someone :(
We´ll see :)

I made a video of the ducks this morning, I´ll post once it´s uploaded. I wish I could bring those baby ducks home with me, they were just the sweetest!!!
Did anything come out of this in the end?
