Loving these cold dry crisp mornings forgot what they were like. We don't get them number anymore 10 would be good 15 excellent. Only 4 today Lol, But hey loved ever second of it. They didn't really want to bolt and young ones to boot, got my suspicions there are lots of new age travellers (crusties) near by with dogs think they have been taking a few and spooking the rabbits. 

Well done on your 21, atb.

Cheers Arry

Christ you guys don't know you're born not a bramble in sight. My hands and arms look like I've been self harming so many scratches. We do have a few open ground borrows but nothing like that, it's mostly hedge crawling for me Lol. Atb.
