Combines have been going in some parts of the country, but places affected by the recent floods are likely to find harvest a bit of a challenge.

This picture sent in by FW reader Robert Borrill in Lincs shows a rather unusual problem.

During the recent floods a large number of round silage bales floated into the middle of one his wheat fields and have been left stranded there as the water has drained away.

Mr Borrill of A M Borrill & Son had 40 ha (100 acres) of wheat flooded so badly that he couldn’t see the ears for over a week. The land is at Waddingham in northern Lincolnshire.
