Thursday 7th March

Well it’s been the first rain for about four weeks, just when we were just getting used to the dry, the area has dried out quite a bit but some paths are still inaccessible without wellies.
Bob has been told to rest and take it easy for a couple of days, so there is just me, the dogs and a corny joke free zone.
This afternoon came across a dozen Carrion Crows, eight in one tree and four in another, don’t often see them in flocks. They sat silently in the trees and were there for approximately five minutes before slowly flying off in pairs and in different directions. Crows are very intelligent and I wonder if this was a meeting to establish nesting areas, any ideas??
