We have just been down to Bournemouth for a couple of days.The weather was good so we drove to Lulworth and Durdle Door. I wanted a look at the cliffs from the beach for a painting that I have in mind. It's a long trek down to the beach especially the steps at the end, but well worth it. As well as the cliffs I had good views of rock pipits on the beach and on the rocks. However the best birds were the rooks on the fence posts in the car park at the top. They were hunting for scraps left by picnickers, so a few drawings were the result. The french meeting was good this week we listened to a french pod-cast about the Tour de France and had quite a good chat about it.
