Strange experience the other day.
We were standing on the back porch when Pia spotted a small brown thing running across the ground beside the house directly towards us. First thought was rat, but it was much too furry and moved quite slowly. It ducked under the barbeque and I grabbed the camera and came back out to investigate.
When I lifted up the cover it ran (rather slowly) around the edge of the porch before stopping next to the house.
It didn’t appreciate being watched so closely, so eventually decided to hide again.
Obviously it isn’t the brightest spark around. Once we left it alone for a while it disappeared somewhere.
