Sea Fret Again!

Sea Fret Again!

Yet another damp, misty day on the east coast with the sea fret but spotted this heron on the river.

Duckling News

Duckling News

The five ducklings are growing up fast.  They're getting their adult feathers but no colours yet so can't tell if they are male or female.  Can't fly yet but are starting to stretch their wings.

Another batch of 11 arrived this morning - so tiny!

There's No Escape!

There's No Escape!

Walked into Whitby this morning.    More than half-way there when these 2 flew in.  Do they really think I carry the bird seed around with me!!

Resident Seagull

Resident Seagull

We seem to have a resident seagull and the smaller birds don't get a look in at the bird feeder.  At least the ducklings are too big to be eaten now.

Wildlife Area

Wildlife Area

The wildlife area at the bottom of the garden is really starting to flourish.  The wild flowers - wild garlic, red campion, for-get-me-nots, bluebells, buttercups and dandelions - are forming a colourful patchwork carpet.  The birds are nesting and the insects are coming out of hibernation.  It really is the best time of year.

Late Vacancy

Late Vacancy

What a fantastic Bank Holiday Weekend it's been!  Aall to wall sunshine and temperatures soaring.  

The cottage is available until Friday for anyone wanting a last minute break while the weather is so good.  3 nights reduced from £370-£300.  Call to book now.

Three weeks old

Three weeks old

Three weeks old today but only 5 left from the original 18.  I think they are too big for the seagulls to snatch now - fingers crossed!
