a Goldcrest in Great Dalby(January 19, 2016)
We have had a wonderful show of birds on the various birdfeeders dotted around the farmland and in the garden. A little bird appeared in a friend's garden in Great Dalby which has made us very jealous and here it is, enjoying some evergreen bounty.
Time to cut hedges, mend machinery, move into a 'new' farm office in the farmyard, adapt current machinery, shampoo all the cottage carpets, cut down sapling trees in the cottage garden............... deal with a new damp patch in the cottage. Happy days, especially with a hard frosty ground to work on.
