The fields, pastures, riversides and skies are a constant source of bird activity.
Foddering, flying, nest building, swooping and calling there's so much to observe on the farm at this time of year.
What is not so easy to see is the fabulously well camouflaged nests
made by the many ground nesting birds we have on the farm.
The woodcock's plumage is beautiful and blends perfectly with the dried grasses and reeds making it almost impossible to spot.
This nest belongs to a lapwing and is cleverly woven and hidden in a clump of short reeds.
