Stuck in the mud
You may have noticed our shepherd’s hut which we managed to tow all the way from Kettering on Friday. Unfortunately we only got it a few yards onto our track before it would go no further. We’ll have to wait until the mud dries out a bit before we move it to a less obtrusive location. We’ve chopped back some of the brambles to avoid blocking the footpath.
We were unable to put sheep on the meadow last September. We had gates made to allow access into the wood through the temporary electric fence, but these arrived too late for the sheep. So we’ll be trying it again this September, hopefully with more luck!
Many people have asked about the sculpture of otters on the fallen oak branch by the stream. It is called “The Raft” and is by our friend Piers Mason. See http://piersmason.co/gallery.html .
