Well the temperature reached a balmy 19 degress at the yurt camp this afternoon. Spring has finally arrived. There are loads of swallows ducking and diving and trying to build nests in the stable block. On the lake are a great number of moor hens also building nests and making loads of noise. The swallows are swooping over the lake drinking and taking mud from the banks to make their nests. Many house martins have returned and we have seen today swallows, house martins and swifts all in the skies above the yurt camp. The canada gesse have left the lake again although we keep hearing them as they pass by overhead. Looking forward to an open afternoon and evening at the weekend at the yurt camp.
The good news is that the Council have now approved our tented site licence so the last piece of red tape has been formally sorted out. Both yurts are looking really nice in the sunshine - so much better now after all the rain we have had recently. We have planted some tubs of herbs around the doorways of both yurts so our glampers can use them if they want to when cooking at the camp. The grass is growing like mad and the camp site is looking really nice with all the newly planted trees sprouting.
