Finally, we got the hay baled Saturday afternoon. Got half in Saturday night and rest in Sunday. Even managed to sell one hundred bales straight off the field. It smells lovely and has turned out much better than we thought. The "tackle" is all washed, checked and away till next...........Summer? Whenever that may be!

Good news for anyone staying in our cottages. A brand spanking new Farm Shop and Cafe/Bistro has opened today.
Better news it's easily within walking distance and is well stocked with fresh local produce.
The Olde Spot, on the hoof, is the name of the cafe/bistro.
Roaming Roosters, is the name of the farm shop.

Ken has started mowing this afternoon!!! 3rd. September. Not sure if it will make hay yet depends on the weather!!!
Help Barrie, what is having a feast on the fence post. Is it a kestrel?
This ladybird looks all washed out and last but not least this butterfly was sunning itself in the greenhouse.

Went out on our mountain bikes yesterday into Gisburn Forest!!!!!! Saw four people altogether. I didn't use my camera because we were caught in torrential rain. Have to say thoroughly enjoyed getting very wet and very very dirty. Going again as soon as I can persuade Ken. (He is a little bit saddle sore lol)

A picture of our guests who left Mrs. Wagtails Cottage this morning. In the last couple of days they have seen a kestrel and this morning a hare and two white butterflies.

Well what a mixed bag of weather we've had this last week. One excellent piece of news, guests staying in Jenny Wrens Cottage saw a "Hen Harrier" yesterday. It was seen just above Dene Farm on one of our walk from the door routes. They were sure it was a Hen Harrier and confirmed with checking in the bird identification book back at Jenny Wrens.
