353 Chipping

"If this is rain, then we could do with a bit more of it" remarked the farmer at Greenlands Farm in the Forest of Bowland, for the wet day forecast had turned into one of the best for weeks. The fields were full of lambs, flocks of pewits tumbled about the sky and curlews kept up a continuous bubbling serenade, while the only hint of wet weather was the celandines that sprinkled every field.
