Hold her steady, Pilot. Steady … steady … steadeeey. Bomb gone!

I strolled through Hoo Wood yesterday, minding my business, whistling softly, when something hit me on top of my head – it had a bit of momentum behind it, too. A small brown thing tumbled through the air, landing on the track in front of me.  It was a shrew! As I knelt to investigate, it gasped a couple of times and died.  Small animals colliding with  my head is becoming a regular event; I wonder why?

  1. In Sweden I have encountered many times dead Shrews, not falling on my head though;)!

    • I’ve only been hit on the head once with a shrew, and it was alive at the time. There is still time for you, too, Ann. 😉

  2. I agree with Ashley – I’d probably freak out.

    I’m still waiting for the day when I’m looking straight up at a bird in a tree and bird poo lands on my glasses.

  3. This last month, near miss with a black bird and a bat, never been hit yet by a shrew.
