It was a lovely morning at Bobbin Mill Cottage, so I took Irty our little terrier for a walk on to the fell behind our cottage. It was really slippy up there, but the views over to the Coniston fells were terrific.
On Saturday, we held a “bird race” at Haybridge Nature Reserve. A lively crowd of people arrived and set off to see how many species of birds they could see in an hour. The winning team spotted 24 species of bird, but the “special”sighting of the day had to be this Hen Harrier spotted and pictured by Duncan Cooke.
Here at Bobbin Mill Cottage we’ve just had a new wood stove installed and it’s the time of year for stocking up on wood supplies – why not come along on a coppicing day and learn all about this woodland craft?
