Its been a quiet weekend, not sure I achieved much, although the signs are coming along slowly. Linda came over on Sat and took some cracking pictures of the dogs. Adam tried to fly Cool Ground for her, but he is definitely overweight still and all she got was a shot of him disappearing down the field!! All was well and Adam retrieved him but that was all we could do. The snow looked stunning in the sunshine and we took the dogs for a walk while Adam baby sat Sorrel, who does not like being left!! But she is far too young to come on a proper walk and far to heavy to carry any distance. I could have given her a ride on the sledge but I doubt she would have stayed.

If you look on the new slide show, just scroll down the right hand side and you will find it, you will see some of the pictures and also my very leaning snowman. The weather changed today, the quality of the snow changed too, instead of being powdery, it is now more sticky, good for snowballs and snow men, but definitely starting to thaw and looking very grubby. I tried to push the snowman upright, but his head came off!! So instead I pushed him over as I was concerned that he might fall on one of the puppies, and he was no small weight of snow! There has been a dark cloud over May Hill all day, so I suspect it has been snowing up there, it is over 900 feet at the top, so its quite a bit higher than here. We had snow, but nothing to speak of really. I guess it is over for the time being, and that means once it is thawed we can get on a little better. Its amazingly hard to walk the dogs in it, very invigorating, but tiring! And we can’t fly most of the birds because when I tried in snow last year, Gazelle would not land on it. Luckily then there were some grassy patches, but not right now! So we have to wait until it has gone before we can start the birds off again. Ah well, its been a nice break, although I want to get on again now.



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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
