We have a visitor this week. Sheri Myler, a student from the North of England is doing a week's placement with us. She is already very keen on cryptozoology and eager to learn. I confidently predict that she will be an asset to the cryptozoological community in years to come. However, we decided to put her to work, and each day she will be blogging about what she has been doing...
This day began with the animal rounds. A slight deviation from the usual routine was that, after several minutes poking around a pot of mud, there was found to be no large worms left. So, instead, Cromwell, the pike, was given four smaller ones.
Addendum to the normal activities during the animal rounds was the cleaning of the glass of one of the fish tanks, which had become rather murky. This involved the cleaning of the magnet that keeps the glass clean as well and, after some time of doing this, I realised I had been flicking specks of muck onto my jumper. I hope it does not stain.
Then, before blogging and re-commencing work on Eberhart, was a meeting/ tea-break, discussing, amongst other things, the distribution of the day’s tasks and some rather bizarre correspondence from someone referring to himself as ‘The Wizard’.
Much of the rest of the day was spent in the same vein as the previous few days, with editing. Though there was a brief lull, due to inexplicable technical difficulties, which gave me some time to look at shoes online. The day drew to a close with a fourth big cat hunt, which was shorter than previous hunts. I saw more cat action on the way back to my B&B, where there was two cats mewling at each other, unhappily.
