Rape was cut two or so weeks ago and then instantly platered in slurry so very short chance to shoot 2 foxes. One afternoon decoying in very hot still conditions, got 75 so not too bad. Now waiting for wheat to be cut, they tried on Tues but still not ready and its now raining so no chance till next week. Maize is head height and we are still awaiting grass to be cut for organic hay.
They cut 3 fields on Tues, went out saw 2 very wary foxes, no chance, same thing Weds am. I expect it will be baled and off by now.
Travelling along A303 in some areas lots cut, others huge acrages to be cut. Appears it will be a very protracted affair.
Poor farmers up North, parents have had days of continious rain in the Borders, so combining has completly ceased.
