It’s the weekend again , and here in the U.K. it’s our summer bank holiday ( public holiday ) so it’s also a long weekend, no office until Thursday !
And once again I’m back at the meadow hide. Today in the co-pilots seat is my wife Anne. It’s been rather quiet here lately, but today the hide has been really busy. The good news is , the rat pack are back . I have really missed these cheeky little chaps, it’s been a few months since they were last spotted at the hide. The really good news is that their reappearance hasn’t scared off the Bank Vole.
