Sunshine and Showers
I feel sure that within a few days it will pick up and we will enjoy the long sunny days of May and June.
The lambs are out in the fields except for a few ewes who are still expecting their arrivals - does this mean they are the ugly ones or the tups were worn out?? - who knows, let's assumme all ewes are pretty to the tups.
We have been full of families, singers filling the Brown Clee Hill with their vocals and cylclists this weekend. At the farm next door it looked like hundreds of school children were camped out doing their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We had to keep a very close eye on Widget who was keen to join them to achieve a gold award! Last year she walked over the hill with them and I had to collect her from Ditton Priors where she had found some boys to play football with!

Lambing time in beautiful Spring sunshine! It's been a blast up til now with great conditions to turn our new arrivals out on to fresh grass. The Curlews that nested last year and successfully raised 4 chicks are back. We're watching them to see if they choose the same spot, in the same field and will do what we did last year, put electric fencing around the area to stop Badgers and Foxes eating the eggs. We'll keep our fingers crossed and update you on their progress. We have our first equine visitors this week who have had to dodge the council laying super smart tarmac everywhere. We're going to be very posh in the Corvedale you know! Brexit is driving everyone nuts so we suggest you pack your bags and hide out here in our little corner of rural South Shropshire. Light the fire in Meal House and turn off those phones to totally relax - at least for a day or two. Give us a ring or email and come see Spring erupting in little Tugford.
