A Week on the Estate: Barn Owls, Saturday Club & Lake Silt
The weather remained unsettled this week, giving us blue skies alternating with mid-Atlantic squalls and a short-lived dusting of snow. Despite this, the signs of spring are all around us.
Estate Photographer Damian Furlong bagged a series of photographs of a bold barn owl, one of several thriving on the estate. In the pub field, mulch mats were laid and new trees planted, helping the estate to mitigate its losses from ash dieback.
Graduate trainee Finn Bracey was pictured planning an Easter egg hunt in the grounds; along with tea, cake and laser clay shooting, this will form part of a Family Fun Day on 12th April. Clive from Pell Plant returned to check the Hall’s drains; despite the extraordinarily wet winter we’ve endured, all was well.
