Spring is turning to Summer and everything's in full bloom at Doe Park - bluebells, wild garlic, marsh marigolds and may blossom fills the woods soon to be followed by foxgloves and meadow flowers. The dawn chorus begins earlier each morning and a range of bird species have taken up residence in our 100 nest boxes again. Tom, of the British Trust for Ornithology, regular monitors the occupants of our boxes and so far indications are for an early season. The stage of nestbuilding, clutch size, chicks and fledglings are all recorded and fed into the BTO database to contribute to a nationwide picture the health and numbers of our wild birds


On the farm, lambing is over for another year and the cattle are out in the fields for the summer months. A dry Spring means our grass has had a slow start to it's growing season so our silage and haymaking  may be a little later than usual.
