Its been a while since I posted on this blog but thats because its been super busy at the camp in the early part of 2022. We have had lots of lovely guests and some wonderful weather with a very dry April which has helped us to build our new barn at the yurt camp. The barn will be used for storing our yurts in over the winter and will have its own laundry too. Its also been a damp sort of May which has helped the fields and hedgerows grow amazingly quickly, but June has started with some glorious days on which to celebrate HM Queen's platinum jubilee, and including the hottest day of the year so far, yesterday 17th June. The swallows at the camp have managed to raise and fledge their first brood and they are so cute flying in and out of the stables with their parents. The Canadian geese managed to hatch 4 goslings but sadly due to predation there is only one remaining but the parents are now more vigliant and very protective. Our resident Swan Ethel has remained on our lake since the winter months and is maturing nicely now, she is getting her orange colouration on her beak rather than the immature grey. The summer months are such a beautiful time to visit our yurt camp with so much wildlife flora and fauna to enjoy.
