Lovely day...

A clear sunny day but cold. At 10 am it was still -2 in the shade at home.

In the field behind us this morning were 76 Curlew, 10 Fieldfare and a single Redwing. Some of the Curlews were starting to sing, a great sound to hear at this time of year.

The local Molecatcher has been out this week, but the moles have had the last laugh. He has left a trap, a spade and his metal detector (to hunt for errant traps) along the fence line in the coast fields. If he doesn't hurry up he might well need a new spade...
