|Tete-a-tete daffodils, coryadalis and a bumblebee|
Our tawnies have been beginning to burble during the day, especially when it's sunny, they must be being woken as the trees are still bare and the sun can be quite fierce. One evening I was disturbed by a "qwick" from almost directly outside the window, carefully drawing back the curtain I scanned the dusk and there in the big ash tree were two owls, obviously a pair; Mr was preening the back and neck of Mrs who was enjoying the attention and pushed her head closer until the two silhouettes merged into one. Eventually a noise caught Mr's attention and he shuffled down the branch head bobbing trying to get a fix before dropping out of the tree to swoop away over the roof tops. Mrs sat a while longer, perhaps waiting for her mate to return with a gift, when none was forthcoming she too dropped out of the tree to swoop right past the window down the side of the house.
Good news from Green End, the rejected lamb, now named Rosie, is moving down to a pen at AWs small holding after daddy finally gave in following much pestering. Granny says she'll be lonely so they have to have two!
Despite the glorious weather the CJS Team have been very good and stayed (mostly) at their computers in the office and the latest Weekly edition is now printing, digital editions are also on their way. This week there are 13 pages with 56 adverts, 12 of them being for voluntary posts.
And on our other blog this week I give way to my inner geek and have a muse about IT. Read it here.
