Wednesday 7th September – School run and Lytchett Bay   1 comment

Life keeps bringing new experiences. For the first time in my life (and at the age of 60) I did the school run. I don’t intend to make this a daily event, but as the grandchildren were going to proper school for the first time in three years and were unfamiliar with the bus routes, I thought I’d do the honorable thing and take them.

Kara had never tied a tie before. Margaret demonstrated how yesterday and Kara later told me ‘I expected her to tie it in a granny knot, after all she is the granny’

Unfortunately the girls have to go to different schools, Kara to Sandford and Amber to Wareham ..

Later I went to Lytchett Bay for a couple of hours, still too windy for ringing, but a wander around turned up a Great Crested Grebe, three Common Sandpipers by the sluice, a Green Sandpiper and 10 Little Egrets on the far fields, a scattering of Swallows, House Martins and Sand Martins, a Yellow Wagtail over, several Buzzards and an Osprey.

As the number of breeding Ospreys in the UK grows, the number that stop off in Poole Harbour in the autumn on route to West Africa increases, with up to 5 present in the harbour on some occasions.
