Calling All!

Hello, and as the harvest season and the warm weather seems to conitinue, some people in the country will remember seeing Corncrake becoming exposed as their shelter becomes our food when the fields are harvested. Years ago, it was a long slow gentle affair with scythes and gangs of men, and sometimes women working their way across a field, but with large harvesters, well not so quiet!

This here is a Corncrake Call, and some people will recognise it as it’s a small rattle, can be held and worked in one hand too! Sadly I can’t say it works for Corncrakes as I can’t remember last time I saw one, must have been over 15 years ago, but it does attract Magpie and Jackdaw, as they are close to me and so nosey!

The whole item measuring under 4″.

Have a good weekend, so much on around here, but if a small countryside village is your thing, then pop along to Bibury Antiques Fair this Sunday!

Regards, Andy.
