Down by the river

Tuesday 9th May 2016

It was another warm, sunny morning so I took the dogs to the River Stour at Eye Bridge near Wimborne this morning. Jez was reluctant to leave the area of Eye Bridge and took a lot of persuading. I am wondering whether it was because she hurt herself down here a couple of weeks ago. Eventually we managed to make our way towards the bay where the dogs play. We have to cross this little bridge over a stream just before we get there.

And if you don’t feel like joining the dogs at the water’s edge, or even in the river itself, then there are a couple of seats for you to sit on. This morning they were in the sun.

I din’t join the dogs in the river today,s o they are a bit distant in this shot.

After they’d spent some time in the water we headed back to the car. En route something caught Jez’s attention.

Jez takes and interest in the horses

And it wasn’t the teasel.

No, it was the two horses wandering over to see us.

The horses need protection from the flies

I don’t know, but I’m guessing those hoods are to keep the flies off their eyes.

Closer to Eye Bridge and we came across a team repairing the fence at one of the cows’ drinking spots.

And so we strolled on back to the car and headed home.

A year ago today

We went for a walk on Upton Heath where I spotted this Emperor Dragonfly.
