On Tuesday, 12th September, we went to a place called The DEEP on a home Education trip. I'd heard about it and I had a basic idea of what it was, but it wasn't much like I had imagined really, I thought it was a giant aquarium that you could walk through, all though there was a tunnel that did do that.

Me and my baby sister had a educational session booked in, her's was first and I had to sit through it... I did get a microscope to look at some shrimp with... that was fun... Okay moving on.

This diet affects mainly younger, male birds that are still growing. If only 1 wing is affected it is normally the left one for unknown reasons, but either way the bird cannot fly. The only way to reverse the damage is to basically strap the affected wing the the bids side and place it on a nutritionally balanced diet, b…

Tour of Britain Stage 4


Tour of Britain!

Today a cycling event called Tour of Britain came through that village that I live in, Tour of Britan is the same as Tour De France but obviously is in England and Scotland. We don't really follow cycling so this wasn't like AMAZING but it wasn't something we would see everyday either. We've got quite a few pictures and some footage. Footage!
