I was dreading this post as Xavier went missing for nearly three days, a very unusual, if not unheard of, behaviour. I was really getting quite worried, not helped by quite heavy rain today.
However, all is well, and he bounced back into the body early this morning for a quick dance with Diamond, who seemed quite pleased to see him. And his been on the ledge for a while this afternoon, too.
These shots were taken prior to has absence…perhaps he was banished for bad behaviour ie not giving up his prey. Diamond was not impressed when left with empty claw!
