an arrow a Grey Heron
squawked continuously as it flew upriver over the footbridge crossing the
Adur between Coronation Green and Shoreham beach. The Heron's bulk was
smaller than the accompanying juvenile Herring
Gulls, but when approached the roosting
area for 40 Greater Black-backed Gulls,
hundreds of Black-headed Gulls,
and a small flock of 40 Lapwings plus
other estuarine birds, its
appearance caused hundreds of birds to take to the air. Rafts of Mallards
numbered over 45 in one group, a larger number than normally seen on the
River Adur estuary.
woodland floor of Lancing
Ring is carpeted with fallen leaves under the Beech trees in this area
giving a patchwork of autumnal colours from yellow to brown. Under the
Ash trees elsewhere the leaf litter is far less colourful. It has
quite muddy in places as walkers have trod the well used paths. The dewpond
looks calm, it's aquatic plants looking yellowed as winter approaches.

Got Run Over By A Reindeer
got run over by a reindeer
home from our house Christmas Eve
can say there's no such thing as Santa
as for me and Grandpa, we believe
been drinking too much eggnog
we begged her not to go
she forgot her medication
she staggered out the door into the snow
we found her Christmas morning
the scene of the attack
were hoof prints on her forehead
incriminating Claus-marks down her back
the goose is on the table
the pudding made of fig (ah!)
the blue and silver candles
would just have matched the hair in Grandma's wig
not Christmas without Grandma
the family's dressed in black
we just can't help but wonder
we open up her gifts or send them back
Send them back!
we're all so proud of Grandpa
been taking it so well
him in there watching football
beer and playing cards with cousin Mel
warned all our friends and neighbours
watch out for yourselves
should never give a licence
a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves
Sunset over Buckingham
(Put the cursor on the top
window on the far left)
de Bokyngham represented New Shoreham as MP in 1357-7 and 1362.
de Bokyngham died in 1395, an outlaw, and his lands and tenements, " by
reason of his outlawry taken into the hands of the King." New Shoreham
was held by Lord de Poynings at that time.
extract from Cheal's "History of Shoreham" gives an unfair bias against
the Buckingham family who were Lords of the Manor at Shoreham for centuries.
