This rose was given to us on our Wedding Day last May. Its called Lovers Knot. It’s a climbing rose apparently suitable for a container. The size it has grown to already I think I am going to have to put it in the gound!Jacqui.

I was driving down through Burrington Coombe last evening and came across these goats – they were grazing on the roadside but scarpered when I parked the car! I’m glad they did scarper though because a few moments later a couple of “Boy Racers” came tearing down the gorge. I dread to think what might have happened! I often see the goats high on the rockface and find it difficult to look up at them! How they stay there is beyond me! I was very pleased to see them so close last night. Julia.

The Gosling have managed to survive another night. Every morning the honking of the Geese wake me. I quickly run down and check the cameras to see if they are all there. This morning I couldn’t see them, but there were a pair of Tufted Duck on the Lake. I don’t know how long that had been there. They flew away just after I had turn the camera on. We use to have a few pairs nest on the Lake a few year back, since then I hadn’t seen any until this morning. The other pair of Geese are still on the Lake. It looks as if they may well stay.

Now that the weather has warmed up the Fish are spawning. As the Geese were getting out of the water onto the bank yesterday, there were a few that were mating right underneath the Goslings. There is quite a frenzy when a female is ready to spawn. You would be surprised just how many male fish chase the spawning females. Last year we lost a very large Crucian Carp who must have died died from exhaustion after being chased around the Lake. Fish normally spawn in the reeds on the water edge, so when they are spawning you can often see them. If I see any I will put the camera on them for you to see.
