But, and there always has to be a but, doesn't there? - the rooks and magpies are driving me nuts. I have been really enjoying the birds at my feeders, and was really excited to see the woodpecker again, but now the magpies have spotted it. Literally 2 hours after I've put out the fat balls, they are gone!
And when I go out to feed the chickens and geese, I can see the rooks on the telegraph pole just waiting for dinner
and the magpies getting closer
so I have to stand there until the chickens have eaten it all.
The lambs are coming along very nicely - just today I have dropped them down to two feeds a day. But then I go out with the creep feed and......
they're waiting. And they're clever too - every time I pointed the camera at them, they all flew away. So don't think there's only one or two - sometimes there are more than 10 out there.
On a happier note, the last of our lambs were born today so lambing is over.
And the workshops have been great:
Pam was putting together her Antique Sampler on the Lynne Johnson workshop
and at Pitch and stitch Louise brought the sweet little needle case she's made
and was knitting a brooch with fine wire
Anthea was working on her husband's cricket club waistcoat
and Sandra was making a quilt for one of her granddaughters
And tomorrow we are off to Malvern Quilt Show - yippee!
