The wild birds are seen around the farm buildings more often in the search for food. We feed them all year so some of the shyer birds, like the nuthatch and grey-legged partridge, are already bolder than most of their kind.
Fallen trees and branches we gathered from the wood over the summer have been cut and stacked to supply the Barn and farmhouse woodburners over the next few months.
Dunnocks, robins and blackbirds can be heard trying out trills and warbles as they practise their territorial songs ready for Spring. Primrose leaves are showing and hazel catkins ready to flower at the first sign of Spring.
