Back again!

Grey, then sunny then grey and finally sunny! All birds flew well and we had great customers, I forgot to tell you that yesterday the loo in the flats above the cafe decided that it would have a fit, break and the water going into the tank would sail happily through the ceiling, through the electrics and into the cafe!! Wonderful! So everything was turned off and at the moment the only place we can turn off the water is at the mains, so nowhere has any water, and yes that does mean the loos!!

So it happened in the second demonstration, which is good because at least lunch was over, and I told the customers that they could feel free to use the wood! The cafe staff managed with cold drinks and cake and we ran a cable from another building to boil a kettle. Simon managed to get it safe and turn the water on about an hour later and Dave, Jan's husband who is a plummer came and told us what to do. He is going to put stopcock taps all over the place soon!!

Nothing that dramatic happened today thank goodness, all was quiet, nice visitors, nice weather, nice soup for lunch and a nice fire burning behind me as I write. At the end of the day we got all the people here, staff and volunteers and the dogs and Joan, this photo is for you, you probably don't know them all but the wishes are the same whatever. Oh and by the way Indigo did not appreciate being a puppy!

Now I have to go and make sure that the puppies are not demolishing my wellies for the 95th time



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