As we have a glut of bunny-meat at the moment, LSS prepared a rabbit stew. Sundays are generally major cooking days; she cooks enough food to last us through until Friday.

Wildlife diary: A day of unusual wildlife. I saw a black woodpecker hammering away at the dead tree near the pond. I initially thought it was a green woodpecker (which we have here in abundance). However this one was much larger. When I rapidly grabbed the binoculars and focussed, it was totally black. I couldn’t quite make out if it had a red cap though, as it flew away shortly after I started looking at it.
In the evening LSS called me into the garden. She’d found a fire salamander . It’s the first one we’ve seen here.
