There were 22 birdwatchers today. Here are some of them, photo taken by the DP, along with lots of bird photos.
Meanwhile back at the ranch.
The Shredder arrived and went into action.
Fed this by pile.
At this point I decided to make a swift exit. Lots of bits and dust in the air.
So - some deep sea air breathing. A very short walk. The morning had been fine, sunny, no wind. Suddenly no sun, back came the wind and it was cold.
Being a Sunday people and dogs abounded so there was little else to see other than a few Oystercatchers.
We can spread this now. Apparently what it does, the mulch in this state, is remove the nitrogen in the soil, then it replaces it. So we could leave it there to do all that or spread it about a bit. Thats up to the DP! We also got lots of sticks and trunks/logs to dry out for eventual use in wood burning stoves.
I have been in touch with the joiner to come and quote for a replacement fence. He will be here in the next few days. The DP is to contact the council to say where we are at and ask for a kerb to be put round the corner as already we have vehicles speeding past and driving over the verge.....
Apart from my Prom visits here is another wee view of my other sanity space.
I would like to say thank you to you all for the supportive comments. It means a lot.
Bureaucracy gone mad but when threatened with court action for encroaching on the highway what can you do. Anyone with a brain would know making the junction easier to speed round is not necessarily a good idea. I am also taking bets as to how long the new fence lasts even if it is a few inches in. The rocks we were told to remove will be replaced within our boundary which is legal. I shall take great satisfaction for the first person coming through the fence when they damage their vehicle....
Ups and Downs.
