If you enjoy wildlife and a bit of birdspotting there is so much animal activity here at the moment, both on the farm and in the hedges. We are not so impressed with Mrs Fox and her teenage cubs who killed 35 of our chickens this week, however I know she is beautiful and the guests have been enjoying watching her prowl around at dusk Here are a few of our pet geese in front of The Deckhouse, the fox doesn't bother then and they hop onto water if they see her.
On the other side of the cabin is our new pond which has a family of wild ducks and moorhens on it at the moment, the drake comes and goes, I suspect he has more wives and ducklings on our neighbours' ponds! Our three orphan lambs are now pretty huge, we're keeping them on the bottle for half term guests to help bottle feed, then we'll set them free to eat grass with the rest of the flock in early June. We hope our two female alpaca are pregnant, we'll know for sure when we shear them in July. The pigs are coming on well and we've just planted our new vegetable garden - you can see it just behind the cabin. If you'd like to come and stay and meet the animals, we have some availability still for the weekend of 31st May at the end of Half Term. We hope to see you here.
