We were most pleased to meet a Young Lady yesterday, albeit by proxy, but more correctly a girl named Saskia. It was after Victualling Ship that I encountered her Auntie at the checkout who told me she is mad about wildlife, but more particularly Ants! What a coincidence that just the day before we had uncovered the first such nest of the season with these tiny beauties already carrying eggs which we videoed. We dedicate this clip to Saskia, a charming name that we have never come across before, but still pride ourself in being able to sing a recognisable song containing any girls name in the land!
If anyone would like to pick up the gauntlet in that particular matter simply attach the name via the 'Comments' box at the foot of the page and it's 'Game On'!
