The Yurt Farm has had its first guest in the form of the rare, huge Eagle Owl! The owl has been sleeping in the trees all day and not been bothered by us at all. He has flown up to a higher branch but will hopefully be around again tomorrow. Dad tried to give him some fresh chicken for supper but looking at the size of the owl he must have just eaten a rabbit.
The yurt farm is all off grid so we have ordered a wind turbine and PV solar panel to power the solar hot water heating system. This dual power solution will hopefully mean that the weather will always provide some power whether its a bright and sunny or a fresh gusty autumn day. I’m off to Cowbridge on Saturday to collect a bank of submarine and train batteries to store all the power.
