Having crossed deserts and seas Number 14 has now crossed Europe from south to north. Towards the end of last week he moved up through Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany and then into Denmark. Just as we were expecting him to cross another area of water he turned south back into Germany – maybe he’s heard those stories about ‘The Bridge’ or has he heard strange pipe music coming from a town not twenty miles to the east – Hamlin! Will he stay in this area or will he maybe head for a little island to the west?
Meanwhile back at Bassenthwaite his mum and dad wait expectantly for a new arrival – one week to go before hatching day is due. Will you be at Dodd or Whinlatter on Bank Holiday Monday to possibly witness the event?
Zapp! Kappow! – sorry getting carried away with the analogy.
