buenas noches fidus achateserooneys Enjoyed myself at the Hawaiian adhesive tape this morning. It’s great that the WWT have been instrumental in rescuing the demise of the Hawaiian goose (Nene) and the Laysan duck. Mind you, as I smudged the golden fleece and lady lucks I did give a thought to Elvis and his Hawaiian masterpiece ‘Rockahula Baby’. I apologise for the rather garish colour of the smudges, my computer seems to be taking over control of the colour infusion.
I continued my leisurely meanderings around the World’s wetlands arriving at the “Chica chica boom boom’ section,South America, then perambulating on to north of the border, the United States of America where I smudged a couple of Northern pintails.
On my meanderings I was watched by a saucy jackdaw who didn’t appear to be intimidated by Yours T, so I took his Mencken’s stricture*
Just before I left the reserve I noticed a kerfuffle around the otter pool. It must have been feeding time because whenever I pass they are usually ‘tucked away’ Oy Vey, I tried to get a smudge but was deterred by the frightening ladies with buggies who whizz about the reserve. With their oversized McClaren whizzers they are as daunting as the tadpoles of the Ancient Crovis. A couple were propped against the barrier overlooking the otter pool with the gargantuan buggies parked sideways between them, taking up space for about eight people! I did squeeze in at the end of a queue of chattering school saucepan lids and managed a quick smudge which I enclose.
