The White Horse are inviting visitors to give any spare cash to Herds for Change, to buy cows for the Maasai community in Kenya.

General manager Jon Waterhouse said: “This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people living in the Maasai community in the Mara, Kenya, a part of the world where the ecosystem has become increasingly fragile.

“So we’re asking everyone who pays us a visit over the next couple of weeks to put whatever they can into the cow money box on the bar so we can make Herds for Change a big success and make our mark in the Mara.”

Each cow costs £250, so drinkers are being asked to donate via a money box on the bar, until Sunday, September 3.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
