Life in the cold
There is no need to be watching Sir David Attenborough's Life in Cold Blood we have our own life in the cold here, never mind the blood. Our cottage backs onto a dairy farm so we have cows in the field at the end of the back garden. To the front there are sheep normally in a field when they are not finding their way into our front garden and eating the plants. During the last week I have seen a fox and rabbits. Then there are the regular visitors to our garden - grey squirrels and robins plus moor hens and ducks from the neighbouring pond. Who needs to be watching television when they can see the real thing?
