I saw the culprit for the first time today, drinking in the birdbath - a very large rat. R.I.P.

A hedgehog would explain the sound of bustling in the undergrowth and perhaps even the frequent nesting blackbirds' warning rattle. I'm sad that I'll probably never see Fred again. Even the field mice have disappeared. Anyway, thanks for the info.

Also they grunt and groan like mad when attacked.Crazyinventor.

I peered in but could see nothing. Minutes later Fred the Frog hopped out and proceeded to make his way painfully across the paving stones to another dark corner of the garden, leaving behind patches of blood. Horrified, I tried to find out what had attacked him (we have no cats) without success.Today the same ghastly noise came from the garden border, lasting some time. This time nothing emerged.Could someone please help by telling me what the predator might be? Thu 23 Jul 2009 17:00:18 GMT+1
