Gilbert K. Chesterton
Yesterday, we made the most of the beautiful weather and went to Wimpole Hall Park". It's almost lambing time and Ron behaved impecably as we walked through fields full of rare breed sheep. He was in full terrier mode at full stretch on his lead.
MWNN enjoyed his sausage lunch so much that we bought sausages in the farm shop. The estate is looking gorgeous with drifts of snowdrops in bloom, daffodils ready to flower, and what looked like fratilleries dotted beneath ancient trees. We debated about the species of bird that was descending a tree head-first. It looked like a small woodpecker that was busily hacking the bark of the tree. According to the RSPB book, it was a nuthatch - very pretty.
A good day.
