|A 12 stroke race. Unfair in my book. 8 against 4??? Inevitably the 8's won|
Last night one of the small Swan Upping boats returned. I happened to ask how many Swans were Upped. None apparently. Hadn't found a single swan. The local news stated that Swan numbers in this area were down by a third. Blame is being put on idiots using air rifles.
Even though the rain hadn't eased at all today we still decided to visit Beale Park Gardens and Wildlife center. At £8 for seniors over 60 it was very good value for money. Attendance numbers were understandably low and apart from a coach load of school kids, we had the park to ourselves. Highlight of the day was watching a Tree Boa having it's weekly meal. Gruesome I know but fascinating and within 5 minutes the meal had disappeared. If you fancy a peak at the rest of the photos click here
So am leaving you with some photos of our visit to Beale Park. Rest on the wildlife blog later.
