CSI Bailrigg

Something odd seen whilst cycling to work this morning: a man who had been raking dead leaves before stopping to comfort a small child screaming in terror or shock, the whole little tableau accompanied by a smell of death* distinct from even 20 m away.

I wonder what the raker had uncovered. It seemed too extreme a reaction for it to have been merely a blackbird or squirrel – perhaps the prodigal family cat had turned up....

*: I've worked on open moorland, and sheep habitually died in the peat. It's safe to say I'd recognise the smell.
