Oh dear, what a surprise!
The southerly was more blustery than usual and we were just serving up our midday meal when we heard a noise which I thought was the sound of a door banging in the wind.
Linda found otherwise - a piece of trellis had been blown off its fixtures, had hit the chicken coup and tipped it over.
What a surprise for our hens!
We went looking for them first and they were happily scratching under one of the trees. They must have had a bit of shock but they did not seem any worse for wear.
We abandoned our meal for the moment, tidied up and relocated the coop to a more sheltered spot and then coaxed the hens back home with a favourite treat, grains of wheat.
Linda has a different take on the day's event on her blog.
