Have At Thee, Varlet!

Life continues to be quiet in and around The Rural Retreat (apart from at 6am when crows and pheasants indulge in shouting contests).
Willow is back to her usual self and mostly ignores the ugly wound on her side; the sooner her fur grows back and covers it, the better. Because she's deemed trustworthy by Matchgirl, The Cone of Shame has been taken off and hidden away until needed again.
This could be soon. The Fearless Ones often enliven their walks up and down the lane with jousting contests in which two steely-eyed moggies crouch and face each other from a distance of around six feet, bottoms wiggling, then charge, springing up at the last moment to grapple – briefly – like two very small and underweight sumo wrestlers. No clear winner ever emerges from their trials of strength.

Neither have tried their luck with Maia who can produce a fast and impressive punch when startled by careless felines.

Marten Update: Still no daylight sightings. It looks like 2013 will be a washout with regard to new pine marten snaps. At least they still visit at night.
Dolphin Update: Tim's website is active at last, although it's currently a bijou production. He intends to add more content soon. You'll find it at Tim the Whale.
