CHANGES - David Bowie

The Bowie track my 2 daughters cut their teeth on!
I DIDN'T LIKE DAVID BOWIE!
 Maybe that's because 
'I WAS DAVID BOWIE'
an image of how I used to wander around Weymouth in 1973, just
A INSANE LADD.
FAR, FAR 'BEYOND' GENIUS
(wot says you ShIela? Wouldn't mind a pint for every time we've
done Bowie around your dinner table)
 A little earlier 1963 at the start of the 
MOD REVOLUTION
complete with almond toed high heeled boots.
THESE IMAGES HAVE BEEN CROPPED TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT!
With my aunt, 1964, who never did quite know what to make of me!
It's a God awful small affair to the girl with the mousey hair
But her mummy is yelling, "No!" and her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seats with the clearest view and she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a sadd'ning bore for she's lived it ten times or more
she could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on..........
Anyroad, let's get on with it.
We feel sure the Readership must be fed up with stories of floods
and more particularly images of the River Stour?
but this isn't the River Stour, this is the
5th Fairway at the Parley Golf Club.
With wandering around the Southern part of the farm a little restricted
it was decided to take a look off piste and a morning visit to
and for no other reason than it was at arms length
WOOD PIGEON
kicked off the walk.
With both National and Dorset Bird Lists for 2016 still a little deplete
it was certain (?) there would be a few additions to both here?
A good start with
GREAT CRESTED GREBE
but we had already noted 
COOT
at the Irrigation Pond. It was at the west end of the cross path that
Cetti's Warbler was added, but it or they were having none of it
as the camera was made ready.
FOX
was a nice addition to the Mammal List although there are those who
wouldn't agree,
but it takes all sorts!
BLUE TIT
got it more out of frustration for lack of subject matter but then
at the other end of the Lake things perked up a little with
 POCHARD
 male
 female
SHOVELER
 and a 'fly-in'
LAPWING
indicating those already on the ground.
at the last knockings here one of the few
COMMON GULL
obligingly moved within camera range before
returning to base, there was a message to say that the c2 Strange Looking Ducks were back in Janet's parents paddock, so it was about-turn and back in the direction from which we'd just come! These 2 birds have been visiting the area frequently over the past week, and on description we had a good idea of what they might be. They were, as thought,
 EGYPTIAN GEESE
but a little more than that for these usually
ultra-nervous Wildfowl
were no further from the main road than 20 feet (albeit screened by
mature trees and hedges)
and ventured to within 100 yards of the Farmhouse.

What has happened to the video clips in recent days
video
is not known, and while we have visited a Forum or two
video
we are no nearer to resolving the matter. If there is a
Computer Whiz Kid out there who could let us know
how to resolve this we would be most pleased to hear from you at
captbagsy@btinternet.com
While there
NUTHATCH
was added to the County List, a

COAL TIT
just made for a pleasant but all too brief sight and
JAY
was added to the Year List with both Lists now standing at 61.
Also in their garden was their Christmas Present, a sculpture of the
2 of them by Grandson Lawrence.
?SCARECROWS?
video
Just a few frisky
HORSES
to end.
SAILORS, fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
IS THERE LIFE ON MARS?
