Nativo – crows eating the putty….

The Crow’s work

Billy Hughes, his wife Penny and daughter Kiki own The Hughes Family Vineyards in Malmesbury.

I had an email from Billy today with an interesting story.

“I got to the rammed earth house to find that the putty on some of the windows had been damaged or eaten.

The putty is very hard and you need to hit it with a screwdriver with real intention just to mark it.

I thought they were Guinea Fowls or some thing like that to chip away at the putty.

White Breasted Crow

When I came back a bit later, I saw a huge Crow flying away from the house as I drove in.

When I mentioned at home today, Kiki recalled a phrase on the movie Nanny McPhee, where she said that she had a Crow always “getting into terrible trouble because he has the bad habit of eating putty from the window pane and getting wind as a result”.”

The Hughes Family wines are called Nativo.  To read more click here for the red and here for the white.
