Do the conga

The weather today has really been a mixed bag, it was lovely at the crack of dawn when I got up but by 7 or 8 am the sun had gone in and the morning got colder from then on.

Eventually after doing the usual morning jobs and sitting in the field observing the very pregnant girls, when I could feel my fingers no more I decided it was time to head back to the mouse house for lunch.

Just before I left though the three new arrivals (from front to back) Neelie, Sahara & Ellie May were doing the conga round the field.  They weren't getting many hangers on though! 
The two trouble causers Sahara and Ellie May got a little distracted by a jackdaw and set off after it.

Kate continues to bulge frequently, I really am amazed that the cria doesn't do her any damage it pokes out so much.

This afternoon the sun came out and it was glorious again, but by this time it was too late for any births so the wait continues.........
