I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but I'll be taking a short vacation from the land of Bushism's to visit the Broads.

It now appears that Bonnie's oldest and closest friends Nita is thinking about joining us for the trip.

She's one of those tree hugging anoraks big into flora and fauna, and furry woodland creatures, and I'm sure she would love to know what to expect, as Oregon has similar conditions to the UK. I'm useless to ask as my usual reponse is "it tastes like chicken".

Any thoughts ?

Well now, she might be in for a bit of a shock considering that her initiation to British fauna is likely to be to meet a herd of ‘Homo Boatica Vulgaris’ but having overcome that baptism of fire there will be various waders and the odd pair of boots on the way down to Gt. Yarmouth and across Breydon Water. We do have a seal in residence again close to the Golden Galleon. Maybe the presence of an ex war ship makes him think he’s a S.E.A.L. If you stop at Rockland St Mary’s maybe you ‘otter’ take a walk to the bird hide should be plenty of Butterflies and Damson flies. Stop at Bramerton Woods End and whilst others are seeing if they can contrive to get stuck under the Southern Bypass fly-over she could take a walk round Surlingham Church Marsh Nature Reserve. Back north The primroses in the Fairhaven gardens should be in full flower at the Fairhaven gardens South Walsham.

I could have sworn the book said turn right at the yellow marker at Yarmouth. I think that was coming the other way! Bill...

but wouldn't the Iceni have been more saily that stinky, having pegged out about 2000 years ago.

Although this could have due to the cult waiting for the flood abaitment project to complete, or the lack of low cost fueloil, this could be an 8 part bbc series Smile

Kingfisher are about and are fantastic. Bank holiday weekend we even saw an Owl. The young geese, ducks, coots, swans always bring out the oowwss and aaaahhs. We have our family of Egyptian geesse back again, this year with 5 young at the moment. I even forgive them the mountain of pooh they leave by the boat. Playful Wink  Whatever else she should appreciate the natural beauty of the broads. The wildlife at the site meeting may however be just a bit much to take  Evil Grin

Kind regards, John & Jo.

It would seem that there are good numbers of swallowtails about this year the Ted Ellis trust it seems has a lot more than usual so I suspect that surlingham has quite a few would mean mooring somewhere like Surlingham Ferry House to make an easy walk and I suspose someone would have to stay behind and mind the boat. Quite what they might do whilst the others enjoyed themselves I'm not really sure Playful
