Perfect summer weather for sea swimming, mackerel fishing, cliff walking, beach basking, garden visiting, bird watching, sun tanning … and … egg laying from our ten pretty new chickens (Gretel, Floozy &  Tallulah pictured above). Deer, kingfishers, owls and buzzards in the garden and small brown trout jumping in the stream…   butterflies everywhere.
