Sunshine, cows and cakes
Our farm walk and cream tea was blessed with great weather on Sunday. Firstly we had a look at the calves that had been born in the last week. These were already tanking around at speed whist the cows were sensibly relaxing in the sunshine. After this we walked along to Waterhay Bridge and had a look at the Thames. Still a reasonable amount of water in it compared with some years, and lots of small fish. We then headed past the main summer calving herd and up to Leigh Chancel. A little quieter than I had hoped on the wildlife front, but lots of Speckled Wood Butterflies and a fox sneaking along the hedge keeping an eye on us in the next field. We then headed back to the garden for tea, homemade scones and jam and cakes. Don't worry if you missed this years walk, I am hoping to do two next year, the first one to coincide with the fritillaries in April which will consist of a slightly longer visit to our 2 local sites (one with no public access).
