Endless Summer

Summer at The Shippen has been glorious, although the grass has suffered a bit with a lack of rain. The House Martins nesting in the Shippen eaves have had more than one clutch and are now flying in family groups across the surrounding landscape extending their flights in preparation for the much longer flight back to Africa and they will be lining up with the Swallows soon signalling the end of the summer and the arrival of autumn. Meanwhile the log store has been replenished from our woodland in readiness for our winter visitors to The Shippen. A glass of wine in front of the wood burning stove beckons. Christmas and New Year are fully booked but there’s still space in November for an early winter break.
