Over winter this strange line has appeared in the garden. It’s unnaturally straight and so we wondered if it might be part of an ancient “lay line”. More cynical friends suggested that maybe it was the latest iteration from the corn circle hoaxers?
However further investigation suggests an altogether more down to earth cause. It simply marks the path our local squirrel population have been using between the oak tree and the bird table.
Their constant use has worn the grass completely away. So not any supernatural manifestation, it is more a warning sign that we're overfeeding our garden visitors. Might wildlife obesity become a problem!!
