The Geese managed to loose one of their Goslings by this morning. You can only guess why, but there is a chance that some thing has taken it. The Goslings also got quite wet in the showers that we had here yesterday. A Veterinary told me some time ago that although Ducks and Geese spend a lot of time in water, their chicks can die if they get wet through with rain. I am worried that they will survive tonight. As you have seen there are now another pair of Geese on the Lake. After a little bit of squabbling they seemed to have been getting on with each other through the day, but the new pair look as if they are going to nest. This morning they made their self comfortable on the island. If they get on the Island before the Chicks tonight, I don’t hold out a lot of hope that they will be alive in the morning. All four Geese and the Gosling have been grazing on the Holiday cottages lawn for part of the day quite close to the Farm House.

We have moved the Sheep and Fillies camera onto the Wrens nest today. The Wren has had her head looking out for a lot of the time. I am going to try over the weekend to position the camera to be able to look right into the nest. If I can find the right place, the eggs will be clearly visible. We also found a bit of time to put the cable into the barn for a Swallow nest. They are in and out of the Barns all day tidying up last years nests. I will get that camera working over the next couple of days.

Thank you for reminding us of Willows Birthday, and Elsie for her email card to Willow. Unfortunately she wont be having a party.
