April has been full of wonderful wildlife here at Wessex Grazing, from the flickering tongue of a grass snake to sika heading into the reedbeds! See our highlights from the month below to find out what we’ve been up to.

Outdoor lambing getting going now and 2 weeks of fine weather in the forecast. The farming gods appear to be on side at the moment!

Daisy, what a dog!! We are lambing and calving at the moment which means the dogs spend more time than I’d like in the back of the truck. I give them a long run whenever I get a moment between jobs. She will be off to sheep dog school in June around her first birthday. After that she will start to do a lot more sheep work, alongside her mum Nel, and slowly taking over from her granny Mags, who is now 9 (or maybe 10?)!
