Human beings control and manage the landscape in order to produce food and homes  - this in its turn causes inbalances in populations of various types of wildlife - knowledgeable and humane management of these populations allows for a wide variety of flora and fauna to co-exist on what is quite a small group of islands.

Oooh Pdoc!  Are they getting ready for the rut?  When does that happen up your way?   You don't want that happening in your garden .........

Were they big stags or relative youngsters?

Good morning all

Any signs of calving Frit, or is she keeping us waiting?  The goats and horses always used to wait for a muggy night with high humidity - the sheep just popped them out

I know Runny .........  spent my life toasting my chilblains in front of open fires and woodburners, but this is a lovely warm house and very easy to keep clean - I'm happy with it

I used to love having the log store stacked full for the winter ... now we have central heating and a swish electric flames behind glass in a hole in the chimney sort of a fire - I've always had open fires, woodburners, woodfired Rayburns etc before and I loved them, but now I love not having the dust/ash/mess in the mornings
