Calm after the storm

Yesterday in my blog I had some pictures of the little brook in Exton in full spate – see here. It has all calmed down again now.

I had quite a bit of feedback to yesterday’s blog especially around the issue of cross compliance – that is the basic practices that farmers need to carry out in order to be eligible to claim their subsidies. Apparently on the 31/12/15 DEFRA updated the guidelines which need to be followed in 2016! I will be looking into that today and will update my blog in due course.
