We’re bringing in the hay to feed the animals during the winter. Amazingly dry weather giving us a nice big window. We’ve decided to change things around a bit – leaving fields we cut last year and cutting new ones to see what the seed bank offers next year. Reports from others that butterflies are down this year – but we’ve seen plenty of meadow browns. We’ve spotted about 6 butterfly orchids this year and we are even mowing round them to make sure they set their seed. How bonkers is that!
