The Go Local Food wildlife this week

kestrelA kestrel was busy hunting on the Go Local Food fields on Friday. Something attracted its attention.

The pigeons are as active as usual and the rats are back (both wanting a share of our produce without paying for it of course).

We also have red spider mite on the cucumbers and caterpillars on the purple sprouting broccoli. It may be a late year for butterflies and a poor year all round for them, but the caterpillar count on the said broccoli doesn’t bode well for the crop later on.
