Our guests have been busy recording birds and have left details in the Nature Watch Book.

During August one guest recorded seeing; Robin, Blackbird, Crows, Swallows, Magpies, Kestrel, Goldfinch and an Owl with a large wing span in the rough grass at the back of the cottages.

Another guest recorded watching bats. They weren't pipistrelle, they were much bigger.

Early September and we have had corn bunting as well as the other birds. These were sitting on the telephone wire, thirteen in all and evenly spaced on the wire.

We have only just done our haymaking, unusually late for us, but we have got some good hay.
