New arrivals

It has been an incredibly busy week here at Oldfarm.

The bees that arrived 2 weeks ago are settling in.

We’ve had our first chick – yes, just one – born here in the 10 years we’ve been living here.  I’m not sure how many decades it has been since there has been a hatchling here, I must find out.  I am like a ‘clucky’ grandma watching over them.
