It seems a long time since we planted the seed that led to tonight’s dinner
The salad we planted today should be ready a bit more quickly
We have some new arrivals
Hatched two days ago, ten chicks from fourteen eggs is a good brood. This one almost made it
struggling for over a day before it gave up.
A more mysterious fatality was this Red legged Partridge
which we found in one of the duck pools, where it may have been some time. This is not a species we have ever seen round here so whether it had been dropped from a great height or arrived by other means is a puzzle.
Another first today is visual evidence of possible nesting intentions – for the first time in this box which we have had up for several years
Some other glimpses of developing life
