MY PATCH TODAY

If you search my site you will come across a few posts for “My Patch”.  This is the one I’ve mentioned before just behind my house. It used to be farm land and much of it was sold off and was turned into a golf course but these two fields remain.  This filed is full of buttercups, clover and various grasses.  There is a spring that bubbles from the ground on occasions, creating a very small stream, but it has dried up considerably from when we first arrived here in the 80’s.  There is a wet area which becomes a pond when theres plenty of rain and many rabbit burrows.  I’ve spied roe deer and foxes here.  There are many varieties of birds and it is awash with birdsong. My favourites are the magnificent red kites which are regulars over the fields and my house.
