A Brief Introduction to Call Ducks

Call Ducks are the new members of the Caenhill CC team. At present they are in isolation and I am not sure how many there are but they will soon be adding to the animal magic of the farm. They are a small, or bantam, breed of Duck, apart from in Australia where they are bigger. They were originally known as Decoy Ducks because they were used to att...

OREO - Extracts from an imagined diary.

Below are extracts from the diary of the newest member of the Caenhill Team. Here Oreo records his first week at the farm. Being a dog there may be a few errors in his timeline but hopefully he can be forgiven any slight mistakes. Saturday 26th September 2020 I left home with Kevin and was taken on a long car trip. Around lunchtime we arrived at a ...

Muscovy Ducks

Muscovy Ducks
I really enjoyed learning about Runner Ducks for my first blog so though I would research another breed. It was difficult to choose but finally decided to learn more about Muscovy Ducks as there are so many of them at Caenhill CC and thought they deserved some attention. There are no obvious individuals to pick out at the center. Of course there ar...

A History of the Caen Hill Locks, Part 2

A History of the Caen Hill Locks, Part 2

Who's That Crazy Dutch Cat Lady?

I've been working as an administrative assistant at a special needs primary school for the past 20 years (time flies!). I've been in a long-distance rela...

My first Blog - Runner Ducks

My first Blog - Runner Ducks
The Runner Ducks are my favorite at Caenhill Countryside Centre. I'm not sure why. They are easy to pick out amongst the crowd and seeing them always makes me smile. Naming 'Smile' smile was an inspired idea. This is why I was interested to learn more about them and hopefully anyone reading this will enjoy finding out about them too. The informatio...

A Short History of the Caen Hill Locks

A Short History of the Caen Hill Locks
It wasn't long after I started writing these blogs that I had the idea to write up a short history of the Caen Hill Locks and possibly even the farm. It actually wasn't long after I found CCC and read the very brief history that Chris had written on the website that I became interested.

Capturing Moments In Time

IMG_1023
A photograph can say a lot about who we are. It can also remind us of a cherished moment in time with a loved one. It can capture a moment of utter beauty in nature that we want to share with others. We can enjoy looking at photographs and taking the odd few on our phones, or we can decide to take the jump at buying a camera and doing both! As I've...
