Little Grass Snake

Little Grass Snake

  • Out and About, Overbury Estate

My jack russell, Poppy, spotted this little grass snake whilst we were out for a lunchtime walk today. Grass snakes look very like adders in colour and form, but have a white collar just behind their head, which sets them apart. The snake stood right up to look at the dog and they both did a quick dance, but unfortunately I couldn't get the...

Spring is finally here and the Magnolia tree in St Faith's Church Yard is in full bloom. We thought you might like to see some pictures... Amazingly it wasn't caught by the late frosts and has been at its most magnificent for several years.

How do you get a ship into a bottle?...More importantly, how can we get the combine harvester and other farm machinery up through the village on a Bank Holiday weekend? The same applies to parking across field gateways... and what if an emergency vehicle such as an ambulance or fire engine needed to get through? We are delighted that so many...

  • Gardening, Out and About, Overbury Estate

Sadly, one of the amazing old oak trees in the park split right down the middle last week and has lost a limb. We are hoping that the remaining upright section will be viable and can safely be left in situ once we have tidied away the fallen branches.
