Shakerley Mere


Watch the short Quicktime movie HERE.
A pleasant walk today at Shakerley Mere to feed the ducks, geese and moorhens etc with out stale bread. Spotted a tiny baby moorhen bobbing water following it's mum. I didnt get my camera out quick enough I was so amused by it's motion through the water and pathetic squeaks. It reached the tangle of reeds by an old half submerged log which was the nest and buried itself under the mother's feathery tum.
Earlier in the day we went into town to get some shopping and take some old toys and games etc. to the charity shop that Archie had decided he didn't want anymore. I found an extras DVD disc in a Woolworth's sale for a pound. It was from the film "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and was mostly short uninteresting "making of" documentarys with Dick Van Dyke but Hazel and I were delighted to find a short film about the artist/inventor Rowland Emett included. He designed and made all the strange contraptions that are used in the film.
See the work and read more about Rowland Emett HERE.
