Spud-U -Like

One of the large fields just south of the track is being sown with potatoes at the moment. This will ensure that we have a substantial area of bare ground throughout the rest of the spring and adds a welcome diversity to the Winter Barley and Oil seed Rape which is already several inches tall. The high ridges of potato setting seem to be a magnet for larks, pipits and wagtails as well as other migrants including Wheatear and Yellow Wagtail, we will just have to wait and see!


Both this morning and this evening very little to report, another Wheatear off the track (male) first thing and after a few days absence the Barn Owl was once again in the meadow.

...butter wouldn't melt!
