at last we have had some rain which all the plants and ponds needed, the smell after a rainfall is delicious. The goslings have hatched , just two this year which is fine as the five from last year were a bit of a handful for mum and dad.
The heron is being spotted every day and the cuckoo heard frequently. Damselflies are about but not the big ones as yet, not quite warm enough, although our lily’s are opening daily.
We have released our guinea fowl into the garden and are keeping our fingers crossed that they do not become the foxes dinner!
