The Farm in Winter

Nature Notes

The first frosts and snow leave the hedges and trees bare. It is a good time to see things usually hidden from sight such as the remains of a bird’s nest. Wood pigeons are busy looking for food and the tawny owl may be heard in February looking for a mate.


Feeding the animals takes more time now and there is always indoor maintenance – the sheds need to be cleared out of muck and it is stacked ready to be spread in the Spring. A cow produces 3 – 4 tonnes of manure in a year!
