So i left the Forest today and headed to RSPB Arne in Dorset. I was greeted by this chap.
I was after a Dartford Warbler and one showed up but way to far for a photo. This is their habitat.
From the only hide....
At the feeding station...
So off to Kingston Lacy. The picture collection is first class, no idea HOW Mark Fisher left it out of Britain's Best Museums (it got in the appendix), Jenkins gives it *****.
A stroll around the gardens through up a Spotted Flycathcer
Well it started raining so I had a cuppa and a scone and butter and went and added St Mary, Iwerne to my church list (616) oh and another Spot Fly.
I went back to the Forest and no rain!! There is a maximum speed of 40 miles an hour and as you can see there is a reason Ponies rule!!
