Peck, peck, peck…….
…………..these hens made quite a noise, pecking in unison and with great determination and persistence on the cottage window.
I was very fortunate a few months ago to spend a week on retreat on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Just around the corner from my accomodation was a cottage where I heard, then saw, these hens on a bench in the front garden.
Their pecks were answered when the owner of the cottage came out and fed them. I gather they do this several times every day when they’re feeling “peckish”.
Holy Island is more famous for its castle than it is for its hungry hens. Here’s Lindisfarne Castle from the perspective of one who was just about to follow the winding path up to it, around it and then beyond it onto the beach:
