Hythe (Hampshire) on 11th July 2008

In July, my wife and I took our small cabin cruiser to Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, as part of a small flotilla of boats. The weather was pretty evil - we even had to make a bolt for a safe haven one day !! Because of concentrating on controlling the boat, I had little time to observe the birdlife. However, early mornings and late afternoons (when it wasn't raining) gave some opportunities - although little of particular interest was seen. This one morning at Hythe, however, did produce this Little Egret which I was able to sneak relatively close to without disturbing the bird. There were also the inevitable Black-Headed Gulls around.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
