This morning we looked out of our front window to see the most amazing rainbow! Because it was fairly early and the sun was still low in the sky, the rainbow was a very high arc – too big to photograph in one go! So I took several pics – here are the two which together best show the rainbow in its entirety. Julia.

For no apparent reason the camera that watches the valley we are unable to control. We are able to see a live picture, so as long as it switches to night time mode we will leave it on through the night in the hope that we may see some deer. We have another camera to replace it but it is a different type that will need a bracket, we will order it tomorrow. The camera that has gone wrong is a very expensive piece of equipment. We put it in the Valley in the hope that we may have been able to see the Buzzard hunting above the Farm, but for some reason after fifteen years the Buzzards decided to nest in the vicinity of the Reindeer Field. Unfortunately we have not had time to fit a camera in that field yet. I must admit that we have not been over impressed with the nighttime performance of the camera and had already decided that we would replace it when we could find the time. We are going to replace it the same type of camera that we mostly use around the Farm. The reason that we have not used this type in the valley before is as we are unable to fit infra-red lamps to them. Being down the Valley the lamps need to follow the camera, but we will need to use more infra-red lamps to compensate.
