    A lovely image! Brings back some great memories.
    Hope you’ve got Helga stoked up and a good brew on the go…
    Any good birds around?

    • Hi Will,

      Thanks, it’s the first frost we’ve seen here this winter! Haha yes we’ve got the old faithful Helga getting through plenty of wood each night at the moment.

      The birds are largely hunkered down at the moment but we the see Perigrine most days, a busy great spotted wood pecker and we suspect we’ve got a couple of water rail by the old cholera hospital. But it’s been eluding our binoculars and trail cam so far, we’ve just been hearing the odd haunting, screechy call.

      Hope your well,

    Hi Matt,
    Hope you and the vols are all ok over there. We had frost last night then rain which froze. Very icey this morning. 14 accidents on M4 in my area alone!

    I will organise a sailing trip over at some point, we went to Portishead a few weeks ago. Had a proper sail too, well please tbh.
    Take care
    Cheers Lee.

    • Hi Lee,
      Yes thanks we’re doing well. Yikes! Good that it got mild again!

      Brill yes it’d be great to see you soon. Glad you got some good sailing in!
      All the best,
