A case of the missing goldfish (and a heron)

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 19:18

A plastic heron by the pool is said to work(they like fish on their own) .I have cats who like to fish by my pool so I placed sticks with sea shells on top around the pond making it difficult to fish .

Norfolk a haven of wildlife

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 20:47

I have just come back from a holiday in Norfolk in a lovely part on the fens.I thought Norfolk was all flat and fen but that is not true and is full of diverse country although not as hilly as the west and certainly the wind never stopped blowing.The wildlife on the fen where we were staying was amazing with all different birds.The most spectacular was the Barn owl at dusk ,a beautiful evening with a fantastic sunset (Norfolk has a big sky)the owl came low flapping across the fen come right up to us and we watched him hunt.He came again  another night and again we watched him hunt.I have only seen a Barn owl once before many years and this was a surprise.
