The local female swan (TYP) has disappeared but we think it’s mate is on his own on the fishing pond and another pair, with a blue ringed female, have been on the long pond.
Brian finally removed the last of the hay bales at the weekend and has left the cows north of the last fence.
Art Gene have replaced the hinge post of the memorial gate, with one much larger in diameter and sunk a lot deeper.
Skylarks are now being noticed but with this weather they are not doing much singing.
A Coal Tit returned to the feeders today, see hazy photos.
