I hadn’t done a supermarket trip in a while, so I went ahead yesterday. Because I also hadn’t seen the nutrias the last couple of times I walked along the Yvette, I was extra alert. Instead of nutria I saw regular rats. My new theory is that feeding the ducks and nutria attracts rats, and that’s why the city put up traps.

Instead of nutria, I saw what I thought was a coot (Blesshuhn), but googling it now, I realise it’s a moorhen (Teichuhn).

On my way back from the supermarket I spotted the nutria again. It wasn’t in its usual place, but a little further upstream, munching on a fallen tree. NB: I’d take a house like that, with a garden backing onto the Yvette, ducks hanging out and nutrias visiting

nice place to live for ducks, people and nutria

In the evening, Gergö and I went blackberrying again. Again, we didn’t find many ripe ones. I guess the birds are too quick for me. Instead we found a kiwi bush growing over a fence. And we saw the wild parrots Gergös friend was telling us about.

I think my next post has to be Parisian street art, to make up for all this nature talk ;-)
