Bird Watching with a Bang!

Hello Woofers!

It's Daisy & Holly back at the end of another exciting day!

This morning we were thrown out of bed early so that The Missus could get the caravan all tidy and things put away before we left.

This is really too early to get up!

It was such a rush that Old Two Legs didn't even get any breakfast and what was worse, neither did we!

It was a quick walk up the woods, good morning sun, then back to the car!

Good Morning Sunbeams!
What was all this about? It was TM of to Janet and Moira's Card Workshop! It was somewhere in the depths Norfolk and it took us ages to get there down dark and narrow country lanes!

We didn't mind that 'cos we saw loads of birds that would make a tasty meal!

After dropping TM off, we headed off to the nearest RSPB site which was called Surlingham Church Marsh.

Where has all the Birdies Gone?
It promised some special birds like Marsh Harriers and Bitterns and other stuff OTL gets all excited about.

What did we see?

Diddly Squat!

We saw two butterfly's and a 'Bumbly Bee' that looked like it was on it's last legs! We decided that the butterfly was the best shot!

Red Admiral
What was more worrying was the sign we had to pass on our way to the site!

Keep Yer 'ead and yer tail down Sis!
Seems like you have got to be a brave sort of Bird Watcher around here, if you don't fall into the marsh and drown, you could get your head blown off!

We came across an old church on the hill behind the 'new' one.

The Old Church
I'm not sure how old it was but it was crumbling away and OTL says that more than likely the stone was used to build the new one!

The New Church
I think I'd prefer the old one myself!

The other two 'Marshy' RSPB sites were not very exciting as they were more like a path along side the river, but we did get a chance to woof at the ducks!

The boats were chugging up and down the river and Holly and I couldn't decide why these Two Legs were so fascinated with boats, let's face it, where would this lot go for a wee?

Where is the Pee Pot?
OTL decided to stop off at a field that had been left to grass and we got let off our leads as well. We had a great time sniffin' and running about. Then OTL managed to scare a Hare into leaving its scrape and leg it across the field!

We were in hot pursuit in a flash but the hare got away, I mean, that hare went like a bolt of lightening, woosh and through the hedge and that was it, no hare any more!

Unfortunately, I think I twisted my leg or my old muscle problem has kicked in but I didn't feel too well when we picked up TM from the Workshop.

Back at the caravan Holly and I decided that we would have a snooze, unless dinner was served early, and for a change it was, Doggy Scoff!

Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Yuk!

So that was it, Holly and will wait for OTL 'cos he has got Bambi Burger tonight, so we will mug some of that and see how things go.

We hope that Elaine got a 'Happy Birthday' lick from Archie and I bet he don't get Doggy Scoff either!

Sunday tomorrow, so we may get a lay in bed and an extra long snooze!

Bye for now.
