AT LAST- we can finally have our slurry tanker back in use.
These Pied Wagtails decided to nest successfully in the bodywork, which meant that we had to wait until all the chicks had flown the nest.
Fab family day out at Keswick yesterday - it`s only 20 minutes away. Although we have been many, many times - the sight of the lake Derwentater as you walk towards it always takes my breath away. Great family fun hiring out a rowing boat! - so much to do in Keswick - for children and adults alike.
We love finding ladybirds - one of our guests told me recently that they smell with their feet and female ladybirds eat almost twice as many aphids than the males do, consuming around 75 a day! Thanks for that Peter!

We were so pleased to see that the four Mistlethrush chicks from the apple tree nest have successfully fledged!
This is Pip at 11am - feeling cooler and much more comfortable!
The lovely Summer warm weather has now arrived. This means that it`s time for Pip to be clipped out for Summer!
His coat is so thick that he needs to have a haircut at the beginning of each Summer, so that he doesn`t get too hot.
This is Pip at 10am.
