Temperatures have remained high and the skies clear for the past few days.  Time to catch up on farmwork. 
  • Finishing field 1 extension - cutting, raking, burning, fencing and finally putting the sheep in to nibble at the few bits of grass. 
  • Clearing all the other fields of branches and twigs blown down by the winter storms.
  • Mucking out the barn and spreading new straw.
  • Splitting the last of the logs from the lime tree.
During a short stroll this afternoon down to the lower valley, I startled a woodcock by the stream - don't often see them.

Next week temperatures are set to drop once again and some more snow.
