This morning is shrouded in the thickest of fog and it is chilly with it. Lois is still enjoying a little dry hay in the morning, but starting to munch contentedly through the day on grass. Peter Rabbit and his family are thriving and Mr & Mrs Fox too! Kizzie and her friend saw two hares in the field yesterday - so big that at first they thought they were roe deer! The Fieldfare gang and the Long Tailed Tit gang provide a subtle and sweet background melody - in contrast to the raucous squabbling of the Rooks which are set to menace us until the end of June again.
Ron, Don, Drongo, Nog, Lisa and the rest of last year's offspring are all grown up. They left Poole Tree College with excellent qualifications. Don took the top prize in the study of soil - presented by Terry Firma; Ron excelled at IT and won the "Joy Stick Award" presented by Meg. A. Byte. Drongo and Nog proved outstanding showmen and won the "Lacing Award" presented by Phil E. Gree. Even Neddie and Seagoon won top prizes in Sport. Who knows what the 2012 hatch will aspire to?
