There are five new photographs on the Photo page, starting from number one.

Sorry Sue, forgot to put your word about the Greyhound. They are on now.

Hello Mr. Farmer, Here are three photos from my holiday in Cornwall in 2006. Sun setting over West Penwith. As you can see, it was quite stunning, looking almost like a fireball! Not very clear, but is in fact an owl carrying some prey – possibly a vole of mouse. Karen in Stoke asked if I went into the little church on the beach – here are some photos. 18th & 19th century graffiti? Beautiful ceiling. Looks as though some one’s been hitting the mead!! Julia.

I decided to go for a walk this morning while it was fine and I took my camera with me. The first photo is of my local church which is just 5 minutes walk from my home and the second one is of the river which is in heavy flood at the moment as you can see. The river is just across the road from the church and when it flooded last summer it actually went into the churchyard. Hope you find them interesting. Sue.

I don’t show the Doves nesting as much as maybe I should. In one place or another on the Farm you can guarantee there is a Dove nest with Chicks in. I put the webcam on that is in one of the stable blocks this afternoon, just as the Dove was moving about on the nest, revealing a newly hatched Chick.

With the Horses being stabled because of the fields being very wet, Ewy has been on her own for a week. She is normally in the Horse field, but for the past couple of days we have not seen her at all until a caught her on the webcam this afternoon. I should think that she spends a lot of her time in the woods. She knows where the Horses are as she sometimes would follow them in at feed time. When I get a bit of time I may try to catch her and put her with the rest of the Sheep in the barn.

Now that the Horses are stabled I cant see them getting turned out in to the field until the Spring. The ground is very waterlogged, not so much with heavy rain, but it is continuous drizzle, that is not giving the ground time to dry. It is also very mild. I cant remember this time of year being as mild as it is now. The way up to the Badgers feeding area are very slippery. I finished up on the ground twice tonight. The steps that my Lads dug into the very steep climb helps me a bit from slipping going to that feeding area. I don’t know if the steps will last in this weather.
