summer at last!!

JCB and I have been cleaning out the big pond for the first time in a few years, the mud gathers in the middle as people drive around it making it impassable. It has been so wet for the last couple of years that we have not been able to clean it out but all the mud is cleared now so who is going to be first to drive through it??!!
The Partridges have had a successful breeding season, although late with the cold spring, on the hill and we have quite a few mums with chicks around the tracks. Please look out for them and leave them in peace, if you see a Partridge very close to you it normally means she has chicks there  and you will hear her cheap cheap cheaping for them.
I was on the very top of hill (1023 feet) yesterday with Mark, who has just joined the Club, during a thunderstorm and we had a few snow flakes on the windscreen! Nearly the end of July!

Great fun with a lovely couple from Edinburgh last weekend who brought along their Jeep for a BYO session, it had lot's more mud on it by the time we finished!!
Club members having a usual weekend gathering.
The site is drying up a bit at last and I hope to get some of the water splashes cleared of the thick mud that has gathered in them over the next week.
Finally I will try and do this blog a bit more regularly!
