Have been working on this for a few days and thought ric rac braid would help to make the plumage. Our rooster is small enough to hold in your hand but we have perched it on a small birch base, with metal slots for its feet.
Our Water Vole and nest are ready .. if you click on the photo above it will take you to our Etsy store – because it is wet and dark outside we have only taken indoor photographs
Our Vole with home made from raffia – 15 cms diameter and lined with dried autumn leaves and resting on a small pile of wooden logs and only offering shipping to UK as dont think it would travel well and will refund shipping if someone collects.
The Vole has own blackberry to snack on (fruit – not a mobile phone)
Little worried our Fluf might snack on it – anything that looks like a vole – is living on borrowed time
We have a healthy population of little Voles in our garden who are main interest for our cats, althou sadly for Fluf – he is an indoors cat (for now) and imagine the vole population must be doing better because these kamakazi little chaps come thru holes indoors… from time to time or perhaps Fluf has stashed them for a rainy day or slightly worrying, they live indoors too.

Thou many of us release angels who cant fly, we keep trying and trying is probably what its all about.
