A diary with a difference…..


Well we have a couple of updates.  The team has been busy repairing the wall around our main paddock, much to the disappointment of our badger face sheep, who love nothing more than a good climb over a broken wall.  Hopefully this will mean we can finally contain sheep.  Unfortunately, during the storms a few weeks ago, the wall on the opposite side of the paddock collapsed, the amount of stone that goes into a dry stone wall is truly amazing.

The ‘Snipe’ that I managed to snap a few day’s ago, has, after some debate with two wonderful friends of Flat Holm, Stephane and David, been re-identified.  This is a complicated way of saying ‘I got it wrong’ of course.  It has been [upgraded] to a woodcock.  In my defence they do both look very similar, bird ID is never straightforward!  (Clicking on bird names will usually take you to the RSPB page for that particular bird by the way)

Our late night expedition proved fruitless.  The mystery bird, which I will now name, the Oystercatcher (there was a small spelling mistake clue in the original post), only numbered about 100 on Friday night.  Their call continues to be heard throughout the night.

Someone’s had a little clear out of the Cholera Hospital laundry.  This is a beautiful old building that I’m sure can be saved.  If there is anyone out there who perhaps needs a building naming after them (and has lots of cash) please let us know!
