Looks like a beautifull spring evening,seems the wind has dropped though still chilly!

Helen 19:41

That partly-shorn sheep looks a bit odd.

Helen 17:04

I haven't seen a hen for ages. I'm glad they are enjoying the weather.

Susan 16:55

Don't you just love to see then hens scratching the field and running round ,as if to say Spring at last.

Helen 14:16

Your sunshine looks a lot better than our cold rain. I see your trees are coming out, too. It's like November here.

Helen 12:30

Glad to hear about the mistle thrushes. I learn something new every day.

Helen 12:29

Sometimes they run towards the tree with such force I think they are going to land half-way up the trunk.

Helen 12:29

Some of the lambs could get in that race, without cycles, beat the riders, given the pace at which they gallop around the field.

Lynda 10:17

the " balmy breeze " bit should be read at the end

Lynda 10:16

what happened then ?

Lynda 10:16

they are hardy shetlay willl be a balmy breeze for them nd and boreray sheep which are used to harsh northern scottish weather so this wind toda

Lynda 10:13

the sheep that are being sheared today are the male lambs from last year which are called wethers.. with them being primitive breeds , they tend to start losing their fleeces naturally at this time of year so in order to get decent fleeces from them for sale, they have tp be clipped earlier than commercial sheep

Lynda 10:10

Baaa Humbug !

Gradon 10:09

Ok I will let ewe off!

Neil 10:03

OK thanx Bruv, I'm sure a shear slip of the written tounge will be read as sheep rather than lambs!

Gradon 09:55

Sorry Neil,but I am sure Dan will tell you, he will not be shearing the lambs, they are to young!

Neil 09:49

Good Morning Dan, Cindy & Susan, Good Lick with the shearing, Dan & Team, I bet the lambs are getting "excited" about probably feeling so cold after they have been sheared!

Susan 09:45

Morning All,lambs making the cam move like being onboard a ship

Gradon 09:10

Oh shearing time already,Dan,they will certainly feel lthe difference with this current cold weather

Gradon 09:05

Cindy 08:45

It might be, Gradon, but being a visitor, I learned my British birds from the RSPB birding book, so I never learned their local or dialect names.
