Hi all

We arranged to go to Arundel and meet with fellow epz'er Lillian and we did this on Tuesday just gone.

What a beautiful place it is .... previously I had only ever skirted it and headed down or up the A27, we parked up had a wander and unfortunately the castle closed to visitors until April first... We headed down to the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust....

We paid our money 19.40 for Mari and I , wandered in and straight away assaulted with the sheer amount of birds of all breed ... a terrific layout and all so user friendly.

Six hides in various locales and a new one being built and due finished very soon, we kept going for as long as we could in the biting wind till we eventually admitted defeat and went to get some lunch, grand home made soup, a roll and a coffee later and raring to go again..... So many opportunities such a steep learning curve.... we had a great time.

The social side of epz, the get well soon the support and the friendships a massive part of this site for us, what a pleasure to spend the day with Lillian, we had a laugh ..... we had some serious chats too and we built upon the friendship forged originally here in epz land.... Something we will definitely being doing again with this wonderful lady ....

All too soon the light going we were frozen but happy. On arrival back at reception we read there blurb, a joint membership 52 for the year and the fees for the day returned, AND a free book from the choices available. The upshot our yearly membership in reality cost us 12 .... the 19.40 returned the book we chose the new Collins Bird Guide II retailing at just under 20..... Great value and one we will use , two centres in the South East( ish) Arundel and Barnes in SW London, both easy enough to get to for us Smile

I have always admired the bird images shown in the galleries, but after a day at Arundel WWT I have even more admiration, some of those little creatures so hard to get as they flit from branch to branch to feeder and gone ......... I am going to have trying to get a few images for the sake of it Smile

Till next time

Colin

Sounds like you all had a great day out, although cold. Your first upload was terrific and I'm looking forward to many more.
I'm looking forward to getting away myself on thursday. Back to the town of my birth.

Glad you had such an enjoyable day venturing across the South East Counties into West Sussex Smile

Only been to the Wildlife Centre once, do not know when , circa 1994 perhaps or even earlier.

Not my sort of place, but I have been told for those interested it is an excellent location for viewing the wildlife.

Also, there are some nice walks along the river and nearby for excellent landscape photography ( depending on the conditions of course ! )

Not a bad area for either or both of pub lunches or afternoon cream teas ! Smile

Indeed and we enjoyed the views from the river over a strong coffee when we arrived , aside from the fact we joined and we will return to the wetlands, we have definite plans to visit the town, and the environs looking forward to it .... Colin
