Happy Halloween

October was a relatively quiet month up here at Poachers Hideaway, we have however had quiet a few autumnal guests coming for fantastic walking in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and seeing what the area has to offer...

Flint (Pup) has been doing a quacking job of looking after the ducks we have staying up here at the moment, he is fascinated by them at feeding time. He just stands there looking at them occasionally licking his lips for some reason!

It's certainly the season for game, pheasants everywhere! Rather ironic them being guests of ours, good job they can't read I suppose.

Other birds flying about include many buzzards and a few Red Kites which are wonderful to watch in flight. There are lots all along the Bluestone Heath road.

"The Bluestone Heath Road runs along the ridge from Candlesby to Caistor.
From the Road are some great views across to the sea in the east and into the rolling countryside to the West.
It was used by the Ancient Britons long before the Romans came. In places the Romans followed the Bluestone Heath Road e.g.. 'Ulceby Long Lane' but in others the Romans cut through valleys e.g.. at Tetford while the old Celtic road followed the ridge."
This road is very near us here at Poachers Hideaway...

Lots of pumpkins to choose from at Uncle Henrys!
A wonderful Farm shop restaurant and rural activity place just of the A15 between Lincoln and Scunthorpe-
