This afternoon turned out better than forecast - instead of the advance of cloud and drizzle, we had glorious sunshine. So, around 4 o'clock, I declared that we should go to Airfield for a potter.
The piglets are getting big and have been moved to a field with their mammy. Plenty of excitement, grunting and running around when the farmer arrived with food.
The pond is looking well - the water is a lot clearer than in the summer, and the aquatic plants are thriving. Still no ducks, though - the white plastic duck hasn't attracted any live ones yet.
People had been busy making scarecrows today, and you will find some good-looking ones in 2 of the fields (in the allotment area and in the old meadow at the bottom of the estate).
