The Harbills Are Away

Our cabin on the Edenhall Estate
As a slight divergence from our normal post, we cannot resist a mention of our rather blissful holiday in the Eden Valley. There were no vegetables and, contrary to our own garden, not a sparrow in sight.

There was however, a stunning log cabin set on the River Eamont.

The River Eamont

We saw: jays, an otter, a kingfisher, a sparrowhawk, a songthrush, a grey wagtail, oystercatchers, a 2lb brown trout (brilliantly caught by Billy)...

And, a red squirrel

  1. Funnily enough we were up that way too - at John's. We watched the swallows flying in and out of their nest and a camera was fitted up so we had our very own "Springwatch"! We love to hear the curlews when we are up there.
