Joyous news… McDuck was not egg bound and egg no4 is now in the nestbox, so the ole honey trick must have helped? Though, did hear some duck squeals early doors.
Nae so joyous, 2.15am and boing, wide awake!
27th – Duck egg no 5 is in the nesting box. Rain most of day.
28th – And Barclays latest trick is barking and chasing the Collared Doves out of the garden. I don’t ask why!
got a hen egg this morning.
Finally got print order finished and that’ll be 200+ to mount & more to frame when they arrive!
Then it was time to start tackling the Gallery! Big clean down, rearranging, new stock in etc. I WILL be ready for this Easter Weekend!!
Peter called by, good to see him as always and good to talk.
Totally forgot to have my scone on Sunday, so fed it to the Chucks today.
Tame Sheep accidentally ran into back of me today, sore ankle as I type
29th March – early doors was -8c. Got into gallery to continue restyle, so did Barclay, who pinched a felt Haggis and ran amok with it. Wee felt Haggis is no more!
30th March – Good Friday and nae up til 5am. Dad, you’ve been gone 2 months now, how!
How very apt that McDuck begins to sit her 8 eggs today. I am beyond excited
Easter on mine own, so writing it off and working.
Birds of the week have been Wagtails & Woodpeckers, more than last year. The Thrushes have ceased with their territorial calls.
Snow has returned on lower ground.
Took Barclay and I off for a walk in the forest. Wildlife conspicuous by its absence.
Returned home to see the pets running amok! Chickens were out in car park, by time I wrestle Barclay past tame sheep into hoose, chickens were heading up the glen! I had to stop traffic to drive the reluctant little sods back in! Still had walking boots on and am thinking Bruce doesn’t like Red, as he launched full scale attack on them and me!
Late afternoon, snowing again, was having 5 on sofa, all nice and quiet and suddenly Alexa says ‘Sorry I didn’t get that’.
