Well I sort of went shopping but only to Newent to get bread and milk and ham, after all what do you need other than that! Cotswold Vale Farmers Hunt parked up in the car park, so I took the dogs to meet horses, Sedge was not impressed, he hid behind me, Acer thought they might be fun, but was good and well behaved. We all raked most of the morning, that would be me, Nettle Indigo, Rush, Sedge and Acer, managed to clear all except the small falcon block and barn 1 and 2 I have to say that I think I did the bulk of the work, the others were not that helpful, and perfectly useless at pushing a wheelbarrow! I managed to get the path down to the café raked in the afternoon after doing a training session with the male Lugger, who was very good, although a little vociferous, and before going to Newent. Then went to see my neighbours across the fields to see when we could re organise the Bonfire night, looks like between Christmas and New Year depending on the weather. The dogs came and were very good, and had a reasonable walk too. I need Acer and Sedge to understand that sheep are sacrosanct and must never be chased. The sun came out in the afternoon and it was perfectly lovely, and wonderful to be walking back where I belong again. I am exhausted!! And now we have a full Owl Evening, but at least the weather is good.



I have to say that keeping a weblog can at times become compulsive and at other times a chore. Sometimes I am berrated for not keeping it up and sometimes I get wonderful comments from people who follow the news of the Centre.

It is fun to share the daily goings on here, some good and some bad, some funny and some sad, but all a part of our daily lives.
And as I said before its a pretty cool to be here and it is a great place to visit, you should try coming and watching the birds and meeting the staff and of course the dogs.

An interesting video on Lead

An interesting video on Lead

I find it staggering that people who want to hunt don't see the value in changing their ammunition from lead to a safer product. We have stopped using lead in petrol, in paint, in our water pipes, but they still want to use lead - ah well, apparently eating it not only kills birds but leads to reduced intelligence in humans......................

NO ONE is asking you to stop legal and genuine hunting, they are just asking you to change your ammunition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
