Toby,the other Ranger, Andrew and volunteers are monitoring the Red Squirrel numbers and trying to encourage them rather than the Grey Squirrel. This penultimate image shows a very clever device where if a Grey Squirrel comes for food, that grey rectangular area will have some of its hairs on it (Grey). They do not feed the Squirrels all the year round and make sure they place half hidden food for them in different areas of the woods.
Many thanks for your visit and also your comments.
I saw this bird several times when Judith and I took our very early walk in Malawi however I was not sure what it was. Jo hedges (blogger) and her husband Grant as well as
their SIL helped me to ID it as a Steppe Buzzard.
Recently one of the rangers Toby, took myself and other member on a guided walk round
the Nationa Trust Demesne at Mount Stewart. Last year
they purchased the remaining acreage of the estate. This is part 1 of the images I photographed
that day, the remaining parts will be published on Wednesday and Thursday of
this week. Toby firstly showed us the play
area which is totally natural and features all the creatures from a book called
The Magic Ink Pot which Edith, Lady Londonderry wrote. This book is being republished this year
This is the group of staff and volunteers listening
while Toby explained how the whole demesne is laid out over the 1000 acres. It will be exciting to be able to buy The
Magic Inkpot and discover what part all these creatures played in the book. Lady Edith wrote the book for her five children. Enjoy and when it is published I will let you know how you can obtain a copy (some of you asked me about this when I played Nanny Stevenson at Mount Stewart in October when the book was referred to)
I think children will love playing and climbing in this area and I hope you enjoyed seeing part of it today.
