29th August 2016 – Open Top Bus

IMG_1895IMG_1900

We took a Mendip Mule Open Top Bus to Beer, where we went swimming in the sea. On the cliffs, we listened to the singing Crickets and noticed a beautiful Common Blue Butterfly. Then, we took the bus to Lyme Regis and visited Town Mill. The bus was a brilliant way to see the countryside – we spotted loads of birds on the Axe Estuary, including a Cormorant and a Rabbit hopping through a field.

Later, we had a lovely dinner in my parents’ garden in the evening sunshine. We avoided the wasps nesting in their roof and had a close up sighting of a Buzzard, which dropped down into the grass as we passed.

Total wild time – about 6 hours
