Flowering honeysuckle not only gives us a lovely smell and colourful flowers to admire but is ideal for the birds and bees.

Lapwing Chicks

Whilst Brian was bringing the cows into milk this morning he saw some lapwing chicks in the field next to the house, he thought they were about 2 weeks old.

From our Nature Diary

we have seen lapwings, curlews, snipe, swifts and swallows whilst walking here today. What a nice quiet place to visit.
