In the Pawprints of Pooh!

I have always been a lover of Winnie the Pooh. I think they were some of the very first stories I ever read. (My mum told me that I had cloth books with the characters on before I could even walk).

Tomorrow should be a very enjoyable day. The Marylebone Birdwatching Society will be visiting Ashdown Forest for a birding trip. It was in this area of woodlands and heath that Christopher Robin played with his teddy bear Pooh, and where his father A A Milne wrote the Pooh stories.

The area should be a great place for birds, as well as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and an SSSI. Mind you,  I do hope we will find the time to visit Eeyore's Gloomy Place and  100 Aker Wood....
