A meeting of our White Star hens.
The question is: do they know they are all the same colour?
We have lots of different coloured hens mixing and living together - ginger, black, black and gold, blue-grey.
And the White Stars.
There are four of these.
And here they are.

Bit late...but have finally uploaded these photos taken earlier round the farm...

Haytime is here in June

Plan B for the heron, desperate to catch trout from the pond.
Perch on the fence. Not a good plan. Too far away. 
Plan A had also failed. 
Standing at the pond's edge had been a waste of time.
The wily trout had spotted the heron's shadow on the water. 
Trout 1 - Heron 0.

On the turn…

 Autumn's starting to paint its colours over Sabden Valley 
and Pendle Hill, looking across from Cobden Farm

 The sycamore trees behind the farmhouse are succumbing 
first to the new season

The Virginia creeper has finally started to spread - and is 
showing off its lovely colours

Trampers are fantastic, says Keith, a regular visitor to Cobden Farm BnB.

He came with his wife and two friends earlier this month - and just two weeks after he'd had knee replacement surgery.

He hired a Tramper at Beacon Fell Country Park, so he could have a good long walk with them... and says:

"I must say that despite my reservations, the Tramper was fantastic. It allowed me to bounce over tree roots and drainage curbs with ease. But most surprising was its capability to climb and descent incredibly steep hills - 1:3 ish - with no hint of effort, yet under total control."

Meet Goldie, our new young Buff Orpington hen. Her even shyer sister, Georgia, is hiding somewhere.

Peeping in the background is Sid, the Silkie cockerel. His two Silkie girlfriends are hiding too...

He may be very small, but he's the boss.
