Across the Plant Kingdom things have leapt into life


and the Animal Kingdom is full of small things growing up.

Most creatures are far too small to attract much attention, and even most small birds are too well hidden as they are fed by non stop parents.

Sparrows don’t care


they even use the Sparrow Terrace so everyone knows where they are


Small Rabbit Jenny has been brought in to improve our breeding stock of Silver Foxes


She is biding her time


The hen chicks that were small things are now living in the greenhouse


but would like to be on the move


Their smallness status has been usurped


Claire hatched some eggs


and also took on some incubator hatchees to include in her training programme


Some eggs are still waiting
