It's heating up. 32 degrees forecast for today. We're out at six to wander down to the stream and the waterfall while it's still cool. Angus walks, the PONs run.
On our way back I try to take a picture of the Coot chicks. The Coots are very shy. By the time I've pulled out the i-Phone they're safely hidden in the thick foliage. Getting a picture of them will be my summer challenge.
This mornings croissant an unusual shape. Not that this deters the PONs who think it wonderful.
Today the baker is big on strawberries. In fact strawberries rule to the exclusion of everything else.
Back at The Rickety Old Farmhouse we have breakfast outside at the recently power washed grooming table. The dining table on the terrace, where we usually eat, is out of bounds. Three families of wrens have built nests in the terrace beams. The parents are busy flying too and fro feeding their remarkably noisy chicks. As a result the human inhabitants have moved to allow these honoured guests some peace and quiet.
Sophie has found her warm weather spot under the interim breakfast table.
A golden oldie. The mantelpiece in this is strangely distracting as is the furniture: https://youtu.be/dMaaJZSTVCA?t=55
