    That ones giving you the ‘bird-eye’..

    I went into my garden early this morning to prepare the furniture for a hard days lockdown ....

    ... and spotted one of those American tree rats on a branch eying up my bird feeder.

    It knew I was there and I knew it knew I was there .... it froze, not changing the position of its angular rodent head... but was definitely observing me with its beady left rat-eye. It tried to advance along the branch some ten feet from me. Determined that the transatlantic invader would not be sampling my sunflower seeds this day...I made a gentle forward motion as if to move closer myself. Sensing my advances, the arboreal vermin froze again... he seemed just as determined in his mission as I was in stopping it. Another hesitant shuffle along the branch and I made a Similar manoeuvre..... the grey nut thief froze for a third time... but this time it was different.

    This time the creature turned its head and with angry eyes and teeth bared, it stared straight at me. I stared back. It continued to stare. I continued to stare back . Slowly , Instinctively and without breaking eye contact with the villain, I raised my finger and pointed straight at him. My mind silently screamed at the interloper -

    “this is myyyyy garden ... and myyyyy bird feeder.... how dare you!!!”

    At that moment I knew there was a connection and my growing anger had been felt and understood.

    We stared stubbornly at one another for what felt like 8 or 9 seconds. In reality it was probably just 7 or 8... but he knew what I was thinking .... and he knew that I knew.

    What began as a moment of indignant aggression had become one of respect.

    Still staring intently he nodded... I nodded back ... and with a flash of tail he was gone across the garden fence to rob the neighbours peanut net.

    Hopefully the * won’t be back.
