A small area on land used as a farm, if the Nile comes up another few inches this land will be flooded
These are tree rats I have seen them before eating the acacia seed pods and looking closer I see they differ in markings to the rat we all know and love that lives in the garbage and sewers,
this chap lives with the birds even acts like the birds and eats like the birds, and its a vegan,
Here the birds are dust bathing notice the unripe mango. this is what the rat is going for.
Here its chomping away spitting out the fleshy parts to get at the Nut it was quite content until it noticed me then scurried off into the scrub
These feral pigeons have to be content with eating the maze and corn seed that has been sown for the next harvest.
No rats here on my Island no seeds either, Just fish this mound of earth is only yards away from the place where the rats are now the Nile land is flooded,
