I left the farm for a 7 day break and came back to find a number of problems had arisen. The most important of these was the lack of telephone service.
During the replacement of a window, a lead had been pulled out of its socket and this had not been noticed over the week of my absence.
Please accept our apologies if you had urgent need to get in touch over this time.
The kites are once again the first to take food from the field. We did go through a patch where they waited fro the crows to alight but they now come straight in in numbers without the need to see other species take food.
Numbers feeding are anything from 300 – 400 on a daily basis.
Max is suffering from a condition of the eyes called macular degeneration and we were of the understanding that this was untreatable. However, on receiving correspondence, and a number of pots of pills, from the managing director of Cytoplan Ltd, there is now more than hope that the condition can be halted or even reversed over time.
