Just got sent a great quote, which I want to keep and share and as this is really a diary, it is the right place to put it -

'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'

As a female, I think it is pretty apt!

Sedge took the whole morning to recover from his wasp sting, but is back to his old self. All the dogs are going to Martin Flamank our dog vet tomorrow. Sedge needs his vaccinations, they all need worming including Acer and after losing Arabis I want the adult dogs to have an MOT to check them over before I have to go away to a couple of conferences.

We are still getting offers of volunteers, which is great, they are all great people and do so much for us. The staff are coping well too, and getting more into the birds, the training and getting things going. I am slowly catching up with paperwork and looking forward to getting all the birds records sorted out with Holly this winter, and then it is book writing time, which will be hard work and fun, and tense too I suspect as it will bring back all the dreadful things that happened in the last four years.

We have not seen the Hobby's for several days so I think they have left for their long migration to Africa, I wish them the best of luck, its a magnifcant effort that I would not be able to face. The bats are increasing in numbers at the moment, and coming into my bedroom regularly, which is very cool. And the pond was hosting dragon flies by the score on Sunday, which was lovely to see. I could do with removing about half of the bullrushes, but the weather never got hot enough for long enough to wade in as it were.



I have to say that keeping a weblog can at times become compulsive and at other times a chore. Sometimes I am berrated for not keeping it up and sometimes I get wonderful comments from people who follow the news of the Centre.

It is fun to share the daily goings on here, some good and some bad, some funny and some sad, but all a part of our daily lives.
And as I said before its a pretty cool to be here and it is a great place to visit, you should try coming and watching the birds and meeting the staff and of course the dogs.

An interesting video on Lead

An interesting video on Lead

I find it staggering that people who want to hunt don't see the value in changing their ammunition from lead to a safer product. We have stopped using lead in petrol, in paint, in our water pipes, but they still want to use lead - ah well, apparently eating it not only kills birds but leads to reduced intelligence in humans......................

NO ONE is asking you to stop legal and genuine hunting, they are just asking you to change your ammunition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
