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 …

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
