🐢🐢🐢EXCAVATION AND RELEASE TONIGHT 17th September 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢

Another nest hatched last night, so we will be conducting an excavation and release this evening. Hopefully there will still be some little hatchlings still in the egg chamber for us to release at sundown. If you’d like to join us please be at The Turtle Shack for 18:15, no need to book 🐢”

I’ll repeat if you have never seen this do go along and again thanks to Karsiyaka Turtle Watch for all the work they do. I am really hoping that my nest that I sponsored doesn’t hatch until I get there!  Having just written that, I received an email from Moyra, who is one of the volunteers at KTW, saying it is my nest tonight. Some fishermen contacted them as it was hatching. It is normally mentioned who has sponsored the nest. A slight breakdown in communication may be one of the reasons Moyra is no longer going to work with KTW after this season. Such a shame she has been a rock in the organisation, in my opinion.

We took Ellie to Goodnestone and walked the Serpentine Walk. Unfortunately the first field we crossed, before getting to the woods, Ellie caught a pheasant! I managed to get her to drop it and it wasn’t harmed but all the same it wasn’t too impressed as it flew off! Ellie was left with a mouth full of feathers!

There were a lot of fungi in the woods but we still dare not risk trying any as we don’t know enough.

We went and looked in the church, one of the rare churches that aren’t kept locked! We then went into the Fitz (Fitzwalter Arms) for a coffee. It has now changed hands and it seems the chef has taken it over from the previous couple. It’s still a dog friendly pub with dog biscuits on the mantlepiece and a water bowl inside the bar!

We spent the afternoon cleaning all the garden up, mowing the lawn and cleaning the car. 

Thought for the Day – “I’m not interested if you have stood with the great. I am interested in whether you have sat with the broken.”
