The "girls" are getting braver every day and venturing further and further from the safety of the hen house (or under Mungo which is a favourite safety spot).  Today they made it to what we grandly call "the orchard" where they started experimenting in the skill of scratching.  It was lovely to see.

We headed across to the east coast today to do some shopping and were surprised to find these little ones tucked away in a snicket in Tain.



They were being well fed by their mum, fortunately.  I wonder how many walked past them without even seeing them.
