After an initial drenching, March has brought some dry sunny weather. The rain was a bonus for the hydro. The burn was at its highest since the hydro was commissioned and the intake was able to deal with an impressive flow of water. The hydro has been running non-stop since last October but a spell of dry weather with a SE wind will probably mean that it is quiet for a while but it has generated an impressive amount of energy in its first year.
The warm weather has been good news for our carpets of daffodils which are enjoying the dry sunny weather and are around 10 inches high.
The ducks have had a ball with all the rain and floods and now they have celebrated the arrival of spring by laying their first egg of the season . Our new bull, Kintyre, has gone out with our herd for the first time but seems more interested in posing than he is in the ladies.
Finally, we have been joined by a large litter of puppies from our golden retriever. She has been busy with her litter of 5 girls and 4 boys whose eyes are now open and they are beginning to explore.
