It’s been frosty the last couple of mornings, it’s very welcome , hopefully it will kill a few bugs . Unfortunately the Maize and cover crops don’t like it and they will soon be unviable as a drive .

Back up feeding today and the dog walkers are driving me mad, I’ve put a sign up at the entrance to one of the the drives, for what good it will do, no doubt they’ll ignore it or kick it over, on a brighter note this weather is what I’d expect and the birds are tailing up nicely, so long may it continue, my feeding of next doors birds is working a treat, they are spending all day in my fields now and were enjoying the last of the sunshine this afternoon along the hedge back I’m feeding them on. I was told they had their first day yesterday, I hope it was a partridge day because their pheasants are not shootable yet, sadly I don’t think this would bother their keeper, I’ll be changing the weekend feed day from Sunday to Saturday because the majority of their days are on Saturday so I’m sure at some point I’ll catch them where they are not meant to be

Well there is no meat in the freezer for Bert and I don't want him going hungry so popped out for some bunnies even though it's a full moon as when I left it was covered by cloud and it looked ok. On arrival at the ground the bloody clouds disappeared,  the moon came out and it was like daylight with not a breath of wind. Not many rabbits about , no wonder ? anyway plodded on and couldn't believe I ended up with 10. Bert wont go hungry tomorrow ?
