Walked in the evening and saw two badgers. One ran straight past a very surprised Rosie. Also five chough, a buzzard or two and heard a good many grasshopper warblers. From the hill top you could see the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland over 40 miles away.
Meanwhile I heard today that Cheltenham Festival are having a silent auction of the musical instruments that were painted for last year's festival. Have a look at the link and put in a bid. I would suggest more than £500, but you never know, you could pick up a bargain.
