Well Done glasgow.

              

Good afternoon, I hope you are having a lovely day and the weather is better for you down in East Anglia. We have been reading that two our favourite bird reserves namely Cley and Titchwell were both flooded yesterday and we are so sorry to hear this, the sea wall there is only a large shingle bank and its not hard to see what would happen is a high sea. We have watched the tide pounding in on a nice afternoon there and thought at the time it would not take a great deal more water to cause flooding. I hope there has not been too much damage done but I do know it can be serious if too much salt water gets into the fresh water lagoons.
On a happier note I would like to say a bit well done to Glasgow for winning the right to hold the 2014 Commonwealth Games it will be a great occasion for all of us in Scotland I am sure, as many of the event are in different places around the country so a big big well done Glasgow.
That's it for today so till next time have fun.   Love
                                       
Joan.

I'm sorry to hear the bird reserves were flooded, I do hope not too much lasting damage has been caused. Well done to Glasgow, I know they'll put on a good show for the games. Have a lovely weekend! Jeannette xx

Not a footie fan myself, but I am happy for those who are and whose teams won!  It is crazy all these things that keep happening with the weather and the tides and such.  Quite frightening!

The flooding was not as bad as they predicted Joan ~ although it is still really cold windy and wet here today ~ I hope the Bird reservations will be OK ~ do some of the birds there build on the ground ? ~
Yes well done to Glasgow for winning the right to hold the 2014 Commonwealth Games ~

Grat graphic so far Joan!  I Love the Robin!  Robins over here are so cute.  The ones back home are huge and not quite as sweet to look at!
