Colour is fading fast on the marsh now.
Whatever energy there is in the Rhombus Field vegetation is being pulled down into the roots. It will be time to move the herd onto the north marsh for the winter very soon.
I walked over the whole Rhombus Field today, and a surprising number of snipe took to the air to avoid my size 12 wellies.
I’m hearing rumours of a change in the weather next week, with the arrival of a “Beast from the East”. I’m all sorted with plenty warm clothing. Hopefully, the herd will be able to handle the cold weather, too!
