From Fox attack to Le Mans
Bad News... the local dog fox savaged 3 of our 4 hens, killing 2 outright and leaving the third (Sapphire) for dead - cut bruised and bleeding with lots of feathers missing. We have nursed her back to health and she has started laying again, one very lucky hen.

Riding around the coast of Scotland for The Great Tour in support of Prostate Cancer, and the 24hr Le Mans bicycle race with Chris Putman to raise money for the Brighton based Children's Charity, Adventure Unlimited.
