This was taken as the sun was setting – I thought the cloud looked a bit like a dragon breathing fire!; Julia

Trying to make a few Chicken Houses, so just a quick Diary.

Sorry forgot to position the camera so that you can see the new Cob Swan. As soon as he arrived we made the decision to put him straight on the Lake. Our three were no where to be seen. The noise of the work being done around the Lake had made the hide themselves just behind the Kingfisher branch in a thicket that overhangs the water. It was just as well as it gave the new Swan time to get his bearings on the Lake. Where he had come from he was only on a small pond so it was a big difference. I didn’t see our Swans introduce themselves, but a few of our Holidays Guests did and they said it was as if they had known each other for ever.

The bottom layer of baskets have been positioned in the Stream and half filled with the stone. We were let down by the first people who were supplying the stone but we managed to find another supplier who delivered 32 tonne on two lorries within four hours, at a bit less money as well. The idea was to have it tipped on the grass close to the small Pond but I decided to put it in our drive just outside the Gates. I tell you 32 tonne of stone is an awful lot of stone. It partly blocked our entrance to the drive and spilled over on to the Lane out side our driveway. Half of it was moved this afternoon. So it is not a problem.
