The time: 2.30 ish
Once again Dad is called upon to protect the family home. This time it was a buzzard that was interested. The ensuing onslaught of blows from Dad on the buzzard was a sight to behold. He repeated struck the buzzard, a bird of twice his size, as he chased it away. Needless to say the victor returned home brimming over with pride about 20 minutes later and when we left all was quiet on the ‘south-eastern’ front.
