I’ve just come back from a spending a few days on the Isle of Wight. On one of the days we went rockpooling with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

Snorkelling at Bembridge

Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:29 am

Hi There,

My computer crashed recently so I'm a bit behind posting these up from the summer holidays.

One of my favourite parts of our visit to the Isle of Wight was snorkelling at Bembridge.
Filming underwater opens up a whole new world of creatures, including crabs, juvenile Ballan wrasse, sea anemones and multitudes of other tiny fish.

Squares in the field

Wed Sep 19, 2018 2:00 pm

Over the past few months as the crops have grown in the nearby fields I’ve noticed that there are squares of crops missing.

These squares are around 4 x 4 metres and each field of wheat has around 3 squares in it. We have been trying to guess what they could be, yesterday I finally found out. They are Skylark plots
