Hello Mr. Farmer, Karen in Stoke asked if I went into the little church on the beach – here are more photos. Looks as though some one’s been hitting the mead!! Beautiful ceiling, Julia

THE PHOTO OF THE MARE AND FOAL WAS TAKEN AT A LOCAL BEAUTY SPOT, IT WAS A VERY HOT DAY , BUT THE FOAL FOUND SOME SHADE!!! MARIE.

When I checked the webcams at about 8.pm last night I saw what looked like the last moments of a pair of Fox mating, they were on both webcam one and two. Did any one see any more than the last moments. It was just before they went out of view. I heard the Fox calling as I went to feed the Badgers this evening. There is a chance that it may happen again tonight.

Of an evening for the past few weeks we have had a lot of Starlings above the Farm. I should reckon there has been a thousand or maybe a little more. Don’t get to excited, it is pretty insignificant to a roost, but it is the first time that we have noticed them. So there must be more than there would normally be. I had a quick read on Starling this afternoon. Starlings do like woods, and will roost in them. We do have forty acres of wood surrounding the Farm. It is more likely that they have flown in for food, and return to a large roost. They will travel as far as twenty miles. I shouldn’t think that as the crow flies, the West Hay Starling Roost wouldn’t be much further. West Hay has a very large roost. Mind you I wouldn’t want a roost here. Neither would the local Farmer. And could you imagine how much Bird droppings there would be. I reckon it would be better to site a webcam in some one else’s back yard.

The first Snowdrops flowered here today, and the Daffodils along are driveway are coming up very fast. With the Horses being turned out until after Christmas, it seems a lot earlier. We are normally getting really fed up mucking the Horses out by this time of the year. With a bit of luck we have only a couple of months left.
