The begining of 2010 has set off to a dry start.
We need rain!
While some rain has been recieved it is not enough to renew the grazing and there are some areas of the ranch that look somewhat barren for this time of year. Having said this it should be noted that a lot of the bush and shrub plants have made a bit of a come back so there is some browsing available.
Keep having to remind ourselves that drought is part of the natural cycle and that it is likely prove to be particularly advantageous to predator species.
We have had a couple of offers to ship some rain over from the wet and cold UK. Just not sure how to do this!!!
