At last yippee Mrs Dove has hatched her two eggs
If you click on the photo it should enlarge, right at the back behind the egg shell is two little newly hatched babies,
very difficult to get a photo, they are so tiny, I am perched on a step ladder and the netting is in the way.

Today I got my Christmas cakes done
Bovey Belle called in this morning, lovely to see her, she brought along a lovely gift of her preserves and cookies.
Carmarthenshire has its first confirmed case of Bird Flu,
Not good, this is in my area, Lincolnshire were the first case was is a long way from here, so there must be more not yet discovered in between.
