A Week on the Estate: Frog Chorus, Tree Compass & Log Piles
Spring has decisively sprung on the estate, bringing a real feeling of rejuvenation. At the pond, the patient listener will hear a choral performance from a thriving population of frogs. Nearby, geese have started laying their eggs. At Keal Yard, the local vet has been making sure the Lincoln Red herd is fit and ready to turn-out and begin grazing the estate in the next few weeks.
The fine weather has allowed us to make good progress with maintaining the estate and preparing for summer. Skilled local tree surgeon Andy Hackett is maintaining tall trees at impressive heights. Fencing is being repaired or replaced by various skilled contractors, while two local wood-yards are creating new field gates. The parkland and grazing are being tidied by Mr Bonnett, ready for the Lincoln Reds and fine summer vistas.
