It takes a lot to kill a procession with a butane blow torch !  The hairs burn off easily but the animals still squirm after a 1600 degree roasting !  On the next procession I find I am going to stick a pin in the leader so it can't move then wait and see if the entire column becomes like a British motorway in August  .... :-), bumper to bumper going no where. 

They're all off to pupate in crevices in the rocks but they the Hoopoes favourite lunch time snack.  Hooray for hoopoes !
