Now the road's flooded....

1) I always complain about the crows in our field: they pick through the boys poo looking for insects, and make it harder to pick up. I should stop, though, because the Summer Pasture has something worse: badgers. They don't bother picking through the poo, they just dig straight through the middle of it to get at the big dung beetles in their little holes. Poor beetles.

2) I found Magrat's nest! Haha! Now to remember to check it a couple of times a day until we find out if the others are using it, and how often. It is, of course, in the roots of a spiky shrub.

3) Poor Jo doesn't like thunder at all. Nor does our electricity supply, apparently, as it went off somewhere else for an hour or so!

It was spectacular, wasn't it? Took me several hours to dry off after the rain got bad enough to prompt a dash from the inadequate gazebo to one of the stands.

Canterbury for day three of the only women's Test in the Ashes. Still had a great time. Even if I am still damp.

Alas, no. Back to work today.

Badger advice - from NZ...

Was discussing it recently, believe it or not. A slow way to protect your dung beetles though, I suspect.
