The Campbell is a British breed of domestic duck. It was developed at Uley, in Gloucestershire, England, at the turn of the 20th century; being introduced to the public in 1898 and the Khaki variety in 1901.
The Silver Appleyard duck bred by the famous Reginald Appleyard is famous not only for its egg laying ability but also for its beauty. But until 1980 it did not have a miniature equivalent. Well known waterfowl breeder, Tom Bartlett changed all that by developing this breed in 1980 and it weights one third of the original breed. The miniature is not to be confused with the Silver Bantam which was developed by Reginald Appleyard. The two breeds have been standardised separately. The Silver Appleyard Miniature was taken up with some enthusiasm by breeders and exhibitors for its sheer beauty and it shines on an exhibition bench. It's also popular abroad.
I started Cotswold Yoga and Wellbeing courses in August 2016, after moving to the Cotswolds to escape the busy Oxford life. I initially tailored courses to health and wellbeing, massage, change and healing, and then branched out into yoga a few years later. I began to learn about yoga whilst at university, learning Ashtanga from books and using Ayurveda herbs for cooking and wellbeing. Through looking after my body and my mind, I found the solace and comfort I needed to see me through my first degree course. I never thought some 20 years later this way of life would become my main source of income and inspiration!
