A really tiring afternoon following the beagles around miles of arable farm land. Cornelius eared his North Bucks Beagles supporters badge. Apparently even the hounds were complaining of sore feet at the end when we sat down to a scrumptious barn tea party. Lovely weather and the spring is really pushing the crops on now in the last few weeks of the season. One of the whips saw a rare stone curlew bird
The kids, Lina and Cornelius, met another young follower Jack who was out with his grand-mother. As ever the kids found the muddy puddles and ditch bottoms.
The landscape was wonderful and the weather fantastic making it a joy to follow the hounds
The agriculturalist in me got drawn to the direct drilling of spring oats and reminded that the allotment will also be leaping forward in this spring weather
