Our bird friendly September cut silage is safely gathered in, the plump round black bales stacked behind fences away from the sharp horns of the Blackface lambs in the neighbouring field below the house. It does look autumnal, to see the field cut and to have the winter cattle food made, but the warmth in the air and the brightness of the sun is a lovely bonus in September! Farmer can relax now the silage is finished but he is still busy. Cutting bracken back from certain areas, spiking the fields (aerating the ground which the tractors have run on) and filling the occasional pothole on the farm track. Sometimes though when the weather is this good, you just have to down tools and head for the beach. Even I went swimming!
Our guests have been enjoying this warm September weather and also the wildlife! One couple saw a young buzzard with an adder in its talons,it landed fairly close to them and they watched it as it tried to work out what to do with it. Another couple watched golden eagles tumbling and hanging on the thermals to the west of Duill Cottage.
We ourselves have had visitors staying with us, who live in France, and from the sounds of it our summer was better than theirs! They enjoyed sitting on Calgary beach, in the sun, one morning they were the only people on the beach. We were the noisy group in the afternoon as Farmer and Daughter played in canoes as I tried to photograph sand eels swimming in the shallows. It was absolute bliss, so relaxing, and wonderful for September.
Next weekend there are a couple of performances at Calgary Art in Nature being put on by Comar. We still have space in Studio that weekend from the 19th September and have a special offer on now (see above) as it would be lovely to have the space filled. We also have space in Shian from 26th September. Our Special Offers cannot be booked online, so please ring the office or email us.
