While I was walking round I stopped and spoke to several people, even scrounging a cup of coffee at Copperfields and I was pleased to pass a few minutes in the Paddock, talking to Gloria, plus a rather handsome Labrador dog, from Temple Cottage in the Droveway. As I passed the cottage on the way home I took a quick peak at the charming garden and cottage. The diversity and variety of the houses in St Margaret's helps make it the interesting village it is.
Other Wildlife I did notice a few Red Admiral and two peacocks as I walked round as well as the large number of small whites still around. One or two Speckled Woods were also still sunning themselves amongst the trees. As I walked across one field I flushed 19 Red-legged partridges and two Pheasants, but whether these are wildlife or not is a matter of debate. There seemed to be a large number of Chiffchaffs about, in the scrubby bit of woodland between the Avenue and the Football pitch there were at least six in one tree. There were also about ten in the Paddock, but I only saw one Lesser Whitethroat and no Common Whitethroats in there today.
