Ring doves found near Dobbs Weir..

Good-day to you all!


I have been promising a post on thatched roofs – unfortunately, this is still in the promising stage. (lol)


It’s been real hectic here at By the Fireside.. We have taken on a number of commercial contracts and my time has been limited to say the least, but hey this is never a bad thing..


Please do keep your eyes on our posts, as this article should arrive sooner rather than later 😉


Yesterday was cool, we found a couple of ring doves out back, near our stone factory..


(I was polishing a fireplace hearth, it was actually my colleague who spotted the nest – he had popped outside for a ciggy.. I gave ‘em up New Years Eve!)


We’re quite lucky with our location.  Being situated on the Herts / Essex borders near to Dobbs Weir, the immense countryside provides us a wealth of wildlife! Really, it’s no surprise to find these beautiful birds nesting.. But, it is a blessing!


I have been lucky enough to see deer, badgers and squirrels – at the end of last week we all chilled down at the local and watched a squirrel carry half a coconut away that someone had dropped. It was only the shell, with a skimming of the white stuff left within, but hey to that squirrel, it was like the taste of paradise..


To be continued..
