Spring comes to the Field

The month of March in Pembrokeshire, as in many places, can be a contrast  – definite signs of Spring, but still some grey days and early frosts. Here in North Pembrokeshire in 2017 there is a wonderful warm spell at the end of the month, but also several unusually crisp starts. Averaging about 9-11 C the rise in temperatures overall allowing the plants and fields to flourish.

For farmers, the longer days are very welcome as there is much to do at this time of year – lambing and calving is well under way, along with top-dressing and fertilising the fields. There is still plenty of slurry spreading, too.

A Field Year – February

As winter draws to a close, Pembrokeshire is fortunate to enjoy a milder climate than much of the rest of the UK, averaging about 8-10 C.

Being up in the field at dawn can still be uplifting and February dawns here are often blessed with “dragon’s breath” mist rising over the fields and valleys.

Now a Site of Special Scientific Interest –  the disused airfield of St Davids provides a very unusual and fascinating place to walk, ride or run. With panoramic views around the peninsula, this can be a wonderful place to enjoy the ever-changing skies of Pembrokeshire. With accessible paths and plenty of variety, this part of the National Park is ideal for all ages and abilities and is very popular with dog-walkers.

“Life contains the capacity, like flames that reach towards heaven, to transform suffering and pain into the energy of creation, into light that illuminates darkness. Like the wind traversing vast spaces unhindered, life has the power to uproot and overturn all obstacles and difficulties. Like clear flowing water, it can wash away all stains and impurities” – Daisaku Ikeda. 

I found myself unexpectedly alone on Christmas afternoon.

What better time to visit the herd of semi-feral horses on Dinas Mountain.
