Dawn Chorus walks a success

May 6, 2019

This year we hosted 2 Dawn Chorus walks here at Waterhay Farm.  The first in late April was with the Cotswold Waterpark Trust, the second a week later in early May was exclusively for our own beef customers.  For both we had great weather.  A little chilly at 5am, but it quickly got light and warmer.  For both walks we clocked up nearly 50 species hear or seen, highlights beeing 3 Cuckoos seen, 2 at close range, Great White Egrets floating over us again close enough to distinguish the key features, and a full range of warblers (Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler, Cettis and Garden).  Both walks finished with a fry up and croissants back in the tractor shed, which seemed to go down well.

A big thanks to all who attended, to Kim Milsom and Nick Adams for their expert leadership and my wife for helping with the catering.

The Rumming family have been farming cattle on the banks of the Thames at Waterhay near Cirencester, and at Lydiard near Swindon for over 60 years.  We provide the highest possible animal welfare which together with the grass fed diet produce superior beef.

 

Our beef is hung on the bone for 3-4 weeks to give the best flavour and texture, and then expertly butchered and packed in our own on farm butchery.  Currently we are not having on farm collection mornings but we are delivering locally.
