Saddle Tor

Dad, Malc and Cath (Kath?) on top of Saddle Tor in Dartmoor, fantastic views and spectacular rocks make this a great evening walk. Was pretty cold though, I was only wearing a T-shirt (how VERY dare you, of course I was wearing other clothes!) and temperature was only 9 degC. Needless to say I caught a cold!

Now we will never know!

The chick was killed by one of the hens today. The Cotswold Legbar, Sally, (the biological mother of the chick) managed to get into the chicks run and pecked it to death. Helen was very upset. The surrogate mother is now being bullied by Sally also! If Sally wasn't so scrawny I think even Helen would want to put HER in the pot!

Huge Tree!

Went for a walk in a nearby village over the weekend with some friends, came across this enormous tree!!! I think it might have been a Yew tree, but then all trees if they are not Monkey Puzzle trees look like Yew trees to me!
