Corfe Castle from the other way


When we had our day out with church on Saturday there was a bird hide on the edge of the site looking over the back of Poole Harbour where the River Frome comes out from Wareham. It was such a peaceful spot looking over a little pond and on into the harbour itself. When we got there some deer were grazing and soon the birds started to appear. Immature Great Spotted Woodpeckers, young Greenfinch, Blue Tits, Chaffinch and Great Tits. I'm sure there would have been much more to see but we were with other people so didn't spend as long as we otherwise would have!
After this we went off to the Scott Arms at Kingston for a little light refreshment on a hot day and this is the view from the garden of the pub. Not bad eh? Many a time we have sat here and watched Buzzards circling around. If you are visiting this area this is a lovely pub, the food is good, and the view speaks for itself!

Oh what memories you have just evoked by mentioning the Scott Arms at Kingston, and your lovely photos looking back at Corfe, in the gap....

I can remember walking up that steep hill from Corfe to Kingston, staggering into the pub, quaffing cider, then staggering out again and rolling down a grassy hill, in fits of giggles!!! In my youth of course . . .
