A Week on the Estate: Baling Straw, Clearing Ash & Soaring Buzzards
Fine weather, healthy yields and thriving wildlife gave us much to celebrate this week in our beautiful corner of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
On the land, Steve Ayre has been busy baling the barley straw. It’ll be stacked and used later this year to bed down the Lincoln Red herd in their winter quarters. At Calceby Beck, local forestry contractor Mark Foreman is helping us to make the best of a sad necessity. He’s clearing an area of ash trees stricken by Chalara.
