A lamb keeping warm. As soon as I tried to get closer it jumped off but I think the picture's worked out rather well as it is.
And just so that you don't think country life is all sweetness and light here is a dead animal (lamb?) that I discovered because Ellie was rolling on it.
And here is another dead animal (rabbit?) that Ellie is tearing to pieces and devouring.
This day two years ago I started this blog and this day two years ago I wrote about hearing the first yaffle (green woodpecker) of the year. As I walked home today I heard a yaffle in the weeping willow beside the lane, the first of the year.
