Feadon Farm


Last week we visited this amazing place with the home ed group...

Feadon Farm is a wildlife centre attached to a holiday park near Portreath in Cornwall.

They take care of the neighbouring woodland & it's inhabitants.
As well as lots of mainly British wildlife at the centre..

Sime wanted this farty photo on...

This is the inside of a hollow tree...

At the top of the woodland is quite a nice view.
As well as the centre's wild meadow...

Gary is the main guy & he likes inspecting dung...

And seeing what creatures are around.
Under this piece of tin was a vole in it's nest, but it ran before everyone took their photos...

Snails shelter from the sea breeze...

Back at the centre - Harris Hawks...

Hazel the Squirrel...

A Grass Snake...

Which took a liking to Sime...

A Field Mouse...

A Rat...

And the animals we were looking forward to seeing - Foxes...

Meadow is feeding & Copper is behind her...

And Todd was hiding...

Beautiful!

Lunchtime in rather nice surroundings...

Then we did some bird flying...

Sly - The Barn Owl...

Sweet Boy...

Chunk - The Eagle Owl...

A magnificent bird...

Who liked showing off...

Harry - The Harris Hawk...

Who also liked to impress...

Maggie - The Magpie...

Ferrets...

Lowen - The Reindeer


Alcou - The Tawny Owl...

The Goats...

And our other host for the day - Jack The Lurcher...

This is Jack & Copper when they were younger...


Have a good week!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
