Daisy & Holly here!
It has been quite sunny today, certainly this morning it was getting in our eyes and Old Two Legs was complaining about 'Lens Flair', whatever that is!
As I was sniffin my way along The Sea Wall I could hear Holly singing to herself and it was only when the sun got our of my eyes did I see her dancing along singing 'Do, Do, Do, The Dogtrot'!
|Doing The Dogtrot!|
OTL was all excited about seeing a Little Egret and a couple of Curlew on the mud flats and he took one picture of them together. Holly said it looked like a 'Egret Sandwich'!
I have tried sneaking up on them and rushing straight at them and finally, jumping down onto them like a fox does!
|Jumping like a Fox!|
It's no good, I've yet to have any success!
Some times Holly joins in the hunt and we have great fun jumping all over the place chasing them.
Today, we were mooching along and we both heard a big noise like a 'Big Mouse' would make as it scampers through the grass. So, we both headed into the grass, all big and bold and woofing!
|Ooops! Sorry Mister!|
What did we find? A Woofer having a wee!
So we both said we were sorry, backed out and ran off laughing!
Lunch time we got into the car and headed off to town to deliver some stuff and when we finished OTL said we could go for a walk down The Forest, which was great 'cos now we could hunt some squirrel instead of those mouses!
Well, in we went and charged through the bracken and bushes and the first thing we met was a pair of woofers who told us we would never catch a squirrel making that much noise!
|A Bit Quieter Please Girls!|
He jumped back and ran off!
That'll teach him to be so 'Showy Off'!
OTL found some more fungi and was clicking away, so we jumped onto the log and ran up and down watching out for squirrels.
|Look, behind that tree!|
We didn't tell OTL about the pigeon 'cos he'll only call us names and say things like 'Should have gone to Spec Savers'!
Further around the path we came to the area where we have our best success finding squirrels, so we told OTL that he had to be quiet and to stop clicking the camera!
|OTL, Quiet Please!|
Then OTL called us over and showed us the picture he had just taken!
|What's this called?|
Can you tell me what's this called, he said, is it a Pigeon?
We just can't stand show offs!
Well, that was it, all he could do from then on was to keep saying, 'Seen Another'!
Then just to rub it in, he would show us a picture!
How does he do it?
|Look, Another One!|
We were getting really fed up with him, every couple of steps we got ' Look, Another One!'
So we told him to go back to fungi and trees and leave the squirrels to us!
So, He Did!
Right at the end of our walk, OTL spotted a squirrel on the ground, just about the time I spotted it.
Off I went and I chased it all around the trees and finally it shot up the tree to safety!
Trouble is, I can't go vertical and so not only do I have to listen to OTL I also left The Forest with the squirrel laughing at me as well!
It just isn't fair, I think I will have to go to climbing lessons and learn how to climb trees!
Back home and a bowl of Lambs Heart will help me forget squirrels, providing OTL keeps his mouth shut!
See you tomorrow!
