It would appear that our pair of Moorhens, which now seem to have taken up permanent residency, are having much more success rearing young this year. Not only have 3 survived from their first brood, which are now almost the same size as their parents, but they have now had a second brood of 4.

Communal BarBQ Area

Communal BarBQ Area

Saturday 16th July 2011


The redevelopment of our old Glasshouse into a Communal BarBQ area is moving forward nicely now. Dave, our very skilled carpenter, has now completed all of the new timber work, with Cedar shingle roof and cladding to the covered area and a very large (and heavy!) custom made BarBQ canopy and flu in place. Now for a new floor, a large double brick built BarBQ, a coat of paint to the brickwork and planting out of Culinary herbs for our guests to pick and use at their leisure. Alfresco dining in a fantastic setting.
