Blessed by a Stork
It is lovely to see a stork perched up on a telegraph post outside our farm gate. We need to come up with a safer solution for a possible nesting sight, but it is a wonderful omen to have a bird of such grace guarding our entrance.
It is a quieter week this week, though we have a very solid presence of international volunteers this week, but not the large class of students we had camping last week. It is a great feeling to have the basis of a wildlife pond - though we need to bring it to life with plants, flowers, insects and amphibians. We have planted some comfrey round the lake but I need to start researching quickly the best way to create a wildlife sanctuary out of a large puddle in the ground.
