Another day!


what a day, thank goodness its over, I managed to get the PowerPoint ready for the lecture, and then we had a powercut for a couple of seconds, and I nearly lost it for the third time!! And as usual that means I have to re do the bloody answerphone message because apparently it does not like power cuts. The Hawking Day went well and most of the birds behaved. It was hectic, teaching, and doing all the flying demonstrations as well. Thank heavens that Robin was able to take much of the course with the bird flying.
Rushed down to Bridgewater, well actually Shapwick Village Hall to give the lecture on the Vulture crisis, and managed to get there on time, the lecture went well and there were really nice people there. Had some supper with them and then drove home in time to see Adam and Malmo the Red Kite on Autumn Watch Unsprung live, he did well!!
Then checked my emails when I got home, and if I had been stupid enough to believe all my emails, I have won at least 78 million pounds!! Good job I am not a complete pratt and believe these idiots. Oh well!
Simon had checked on the dogs and puppies and they were OK apart from lake superior on the kitchen floor! Better than the land mines I guess. We nearly have enough volunteers for the Hunter Trials next weekend, I have to say I wish I had a horse again, it would be fun to enter!
It promises to be a cold night, do we believe them or not, I know, I will look out of the door and see what is happening, there is a novel idea!



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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
