Nature's Architecture

On our way to Bournemouth beach through the gardens we came across this wasp nest and it is active, amazing to find this, so near the public pathway.

My First Osprey :-)

I went glamour camping with my partner, Malcolm, in Glastonbury for three days last week. We went to Shapwick nature reserve where we saw an Osprey, our first one, in the flesh and feathers :-)  This picture is a record shot, the Osprey was a little far away to get a good shot and I only had my little Lumix camera with me, but it was quite exciting to actually see the bird in real life.

The Ladies are Back :-)

I went spider hunting today at Morden Bog, found these beautiful ladies, some are very small, others like this one, big mamas :-)

Remembering My Great Grandfather

Today I remember my Great Grandfather, Walter Dolman, who was killed in France during WW1 on the 22nd October 1914 age 28.  He was married with three daughters, the youngest was my Gran.  His name is on Le Touret memorial which commemorates over 13,400 British soldiers.
