Visit to Vane Farm RSPB Centre

Still in Easter Holiday mode, today we visited Vane Farm RSPB Centre, Kinross, Fife. Being a fully paid up member of the RSPB and not having visited Vane Farm for (at least) a year, I thought it was high time we went. Lucy and Adam were keen to go and my mum came too - well, we made her come because we had to take her car! It was another sunny day but still a chilly wind blowing. We saw loads of birds, greylag and pink-footed geese, various duck species including Shelduck and best of all, we saw this little chap - Egbert the egret! I was a happy girl because I hadn't seen one before ever and was enthusing about the fact to anyone who would listen - which was only my mum because well, she has to doesn't she! Still, I was happy.


The excitement didn't end there, oh no, after Vane Farm I went home and cleaned some carpets with a new Vax machine thingy I borrowed from my mum (yes, she has many and varied uses) and this was also successful. I just wonder if tomorrow can be any more exciting than today....

Well I'm glad I listened to you enthusing about Egbert. He is just brilliant!

Hope you had fun with the vax thingy!

Hugs, Alis
