    'Tis foggy out there. Sun will break through in couple of hours then springlike.

    Today prob no geese, swans or ducks as back with the Friday gang for the last planned sesh of brash burning in t'woods. Seasons changing so moving on from the winter work. Last chance then for channeling me internal Keith F.

    Will see red kites. Hopefully also see the local buzzards gang again.

    Super sunny bright nippy post frost.
    Need to get motivated and have some sort of pick me up.
    Might buy some Tigger food.

    Guyls are in non-uniform 'cos of Red Nose day - funny how that got them up quick and demolished the porage.
    We will be late whilst they dither over what to wear...

    Got mini dressed quickly too. Though she's always dragged out of bed on a Friday morning for school swim squad at 7:15.

    Lovely day, bright and spring-like.

    Toys delivered first thing, new ipad and iphone.

    When to set it up? Probably in about three weeks time :|

    Got some trees to chop down around the fences in the works yard today, should be worth about two months worth of logs in a year or two.

    Drinking tonight, decorating Saturday, riding and decorating Sunday.

    See you all on Monday for a riveting update.

    Too busy for a Friday and thought I would get a little lie in as WFMC (Working From Man Cave) today, but woke up at 5:30 for no apparent reason. Onwards to a bit more work cr@pp then chill this evening.

    Climbing some drumlins in the far west (Lleyn).

    There's some very rarely climbed drumlins on the Isle of Lewis which I might try over the summer.

    You know, I didn't see red kites. They are all over The Valley. Maybe they're on 1/2 term. Did see a pair of buzzards, going round and round and round and...

    T-shirt weather 😎, not so good for bonfiring, but once we'd finished that and went on to putting more brash hats on the coppiced stumps, dissuade the thieving muntjacs from their lazy nibbling, really felt like spring. Yay.

    Wot I have learned today. Putinesque male muntjac do really loud barks. One was giving it large in t'woods today.

    Where was I last summer? Cliveden. Massive red kites circling and swooping. I'm not fond of sparrows, so I was a bit nervous.

    There were bloody great big birds of prey circling. Even sparrows close up give me the heebies.

    Nah, I'd have been too scared. I think it dates back to having a murderous cat as a young kid, who would leave injured and terrified birds flapping about in the kitchen.

    All cats are psychopathic serial killers.
    Do you feed the birds in your garden?
    Can we invert this feeling back to the right way up?
