The Olympic Torch comes into our area on 17/18 June. There will be a number of locations in the area where you will be able to see the Torch. We still have vacancies during this period.



Managed to get a photo of the swan plus 4 cygnets. They were on the other side of the river so I had to use the zoom on the camera, hence they are a little blurred.



Friday sees the 1st June and the start of Summer, although the last few days have been like midsummer! Although a little cooler now the forecast is for warmer weather to come. The nights are long and midsummer's day is only a few weeks away.

Our vacancies for June are being snapped up quickly - we have 2 weeks left - 9-16 & 16-23. Too busy for a full week - then try a short break - we take bookings from 3 nights upwards.



Spotted some baby swans in the river today. As with the ducklings, their mortality rate is not good, but fingers crossed that some survive. I'll try and get some photos but they don't venture into the garden like the ducks do, so it could be tricky!

The swallows arrived today and have already started building their nests. The first one arrived about 10 days ago - earlier than usual. Donald and Daisy and the 7 ducklings still visit 2-3 times a day and we now have another family of 3 ducklings. Last week we had an unusual visitor - a deer sprinted through the garden. There are moor hens to be seen on the river and Gilbert, the Canadian Goose, also visits regularly.

After a cold and damp Bank Holiday, today has been warm with lovely sunshine - summer is really on the way. With the flowers and trees bursting into bud and flower, not to mention all the wildlife activity, it really does feel like summer.
