Ashridge Farm

Jun 2016

Its mid summers day tomorrow and we are having some very good summer rain. As farmers we like it to rain every night and all day Sunday (when we catch up some sleep) but I would like it to stop raining now for a couple of weeks as we have a lot of grass to cut. We need to get it made into hay or silage soon as the quality of the grass will fall rapidly, making feeding the cattle more expensive next winter with the need to supplement with more cereals.

I have had little time to pick up the camera lately but the other morning I did get a few shots of the birds that are still visiting the feeders. Te best of the shoot was this Goldfinch

Lets hope that the weather turns now and we get a good summer for our many guest that have booked to stay with us.
