The Elusive Red Squirrel

6 05 2011

Otherwise known as ‘What I did at Bournemouth on Wednesday’.

Firstly, I went to Brownsea Island, home of the red squirrels (hence the title), where I went on a nature walk. Firstly, we saw a couple of peacocks and then visited a hide to watch seagulls. There were loads of them, flying around and cawing. The seagulls, not the peacocks.

Continuing our nature walk, we saw a nice lizard, which blended in with the log so nicely that some people didn’t notice it, and a grass snake. Well, I didn’t see a grass snake, but they said I missed it by about a second. That’s really unfair, I love reptiles.

Then we saw a Red Squirrel!A red squirrel on Brownsea Island

It was feeding on a platform, so I tried to capture it with my camera, but failed. Kind of. I got him/her, but the zoom on my camera is a pest, and I got a black blob instead. Never mind.

Then I visited Corfe castle. The highlight was probably seeing where the medieval toilets were. Part of the wall had eroded where the urine had hit it. I listen to stupid things like that, ignoring all the boring history stuff. Go me.

Then it was back to the beach to watch everyone else but me play beach rugby.
