Flying Things

Corncrake on our doorstep!

In May 2010, we heard a noise outside the kitchen window. Young Alex, using the wisdom of youth said "That corncrake sounds so loud it could be on our back step!" Young Megan, who had been out feeding the chickens came in to confirm that there indeed was a corncrake actually standing on our back step!

It then ran around the undergrowth that passes for our garden - it is one of Britain's rarest birds and it decides to sit on our back step!
