An Early Start for an Early Start
Any readers from this part of the world will be aware of the exceptional weather we've been having. Yesterday saw the highest temperature for a March day ever recorded and I haven't checked to see if that record was beaten today.
Going by the amount of perspiration it took for me to get to the top of the hill, I'd say there was a fair chance of it.
But what it means for us is that we've had to suspend our heather burning activities. Things were already getting 'kittely' last week so it's just not for chancing now.
So we've been getting round our traps and catching up some maintenance jobs. Tomorrow we're going to get on the hilltops for daybreak and see if we can get an early start to our fox season.
The alarm is set for 4.30am- so what the hell am I doing still sitting here writing this??
