Talking about wildlife Winter Wildfowl Britain is an internationally important winter destination for millions of wildfowl who make their long way here from their breeding grounds in the north. They arrive here in search of a warmer climate with better feeding opportunities over the winter. December is an opportune time for bird watching in our coastal areas, wetlands and estuaries, where many of these avian visitors make their winter home. Red breasted mergansers, wigeons, many different kinds of geese and divers are all around in the wintertime for birdwatchers to enjoy. Some duck and goose species are gregarious outside their breeding season, and can be observed feeding in flocks of hundreds, whether diving ferociously for a fish dinner or grazing on vegetation. Wigeons are medium sized dabbling ducks with mainly reddish-brown and grey plumage. They arrive from Scandinavia and Russia and are present in Dorset in the winter, feeding on grass and aquatic plants. The red breasted merganser is a widespread

Divers are large and slender birds, three species of which are regularly seen in Britain; the great northern diver, which is the largest one, the black-throated diver and the red-throated diver. They struggle to move about on land but are excellent swimmers, and fish is the main item on their menu. Look for them in Poole and Portland Harbours and offshore, including Studland Bay. The Fleet lagoon and Poole Harbour also provide great views of brent geese, a small, predominantly black goose that joins us for winter from its breeding grounds in Siberia. The migrant winter wildfowl’s main purpose for being here is to survive the winter and feed up in order to be able to breed again on their return home. Luckily for us, they grace our coastal areas throughout the winter, before heading home again in the spring to breed. Top places to see them include Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre, Portland Road, Weymouth (open daily) and Poole Harbour, including DWT’s nature reserve on Brownsea Island, open weekends from 11th February plus DWT Members’ day on 9th December. Ring 01305 264620 to book.

Top winter gardening tips 1. Dig over your soil As long as the ground isn’t waterlogged or frozen digging and forking the soil allows you to loosen it, remove weeds and add compost or manure, which will improve soil structure and create a moisture and food reserve for plants. 2. Prune your shrubs Start by removing any dead or diseased branches, prevent damage by cutting back sections which rub against each other and reduce exceptionally long branches by one third of their length. 3. Protect your garden from frost Protect any tender herbs from frost. January and February are usually the coldest months. Bay, myrtle, olive and French lavender can be brought undercover or near the house if in containers, or covered in fleece in situ.

4. Spruce up your garden path Spruce up the garden path and bring it back to life with a good old-fashioned sweep. Grab a stiff brush and start clearing paths of moss, lichen and weeds. 5 Provide for the birds Birds need a range of food provided in different ways and kept as clean as possible. Water is just as important as natural resources freeze up and make sure birdbaths stay ice-free (a floating ball does the job, and if it freezes take the ball out to leave a hole). 6. Make a home for mini beasts Create leaf piles in quiet corners of the garden border or leave a swathe of grass uncut; these offer mini-beasts places to spend the winter and provide ground feeding birds somewhere to forage.

Overall, research shows a link between eating certain groups of foods (rather than any specific foods, vitamins or nutrients) and a reduction in cancer risk.

There are no proven ways to prevent cancer, but you can reduce your risk of getting it.

Is your House value going up? According to the Land Registry, the price of an average property in England and Wales rose 1.1% to £162,561 in the year to September, the biggest year-on-year rise since November 2010.

Children are expensive? Parents spend more than £300 a month just keeping a child in essentials, according to a new study by the Halifax. The bill for clothes, food, transport and other vital expenses is, on average, £3,700 a year. Mail

Where is your money going? In Britain, for every £100 the average worker earns, £46 will go to the government – that’s up from around £8 in 1900. Add it all up and over a lifetime the average working Britain pays around £650,000 for his share of our government. FT

Can I carry that for you? Did you know that when Mary Queen of Scots lived in France she had military cadets to carry her golf clubs for her. When she came to Scotland she brought the practice with her, and the word ‘cadet’ evolved into the word ‘caddy’. BBC

Minster Marshmallow Cupcakes - a Taste of Rasa Sayang

Makes 24

Sweets Traditional Sweet Shop

East Street

Preparation 30 minutes – Baking Time: 20 minutes – Difficulty: Easy It’s December! Which to me means cooking as a family and here’s a recipe that’s fantastic for kids. With the help from Minster Sweets they have kindly provided me with something new but a success in America, ‘Marshmallow Fluff’ (tub filled with marshmallow filling) a fantastic product that allows you to do so much with it, simply add it to hot-chocolate or make a cheesecake out of it. Not to mention about their vast traditional sweets they sell as well, definitely worth a visit. Not a marshmallow fan? - you can follow this recipe and leave them out. Ingredients: 250g unsalted butter (softened) 220g self-rising flour (sieved) 3 eggs 175g caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional) 2 tbsp of Guinness – trust me on this (optional) 1 jar of marshmallow fluff (optional) 2 tbsp of cocoa power – for chocolate lovers

For the icing buttercream 100g unsalted butter (softened) 150g icing sugar 1 tbsp vanilla extract 1 tbsp milk (optional) food colouring (optional) any form of sprinklers to finish

mixing until all the flour has disappeared and 100s of old favourites there are no lumps remaining. You’ll be spoilt 4. Probably the hardest stage, put a small amount for choice of cake mix into each cupcake holder topped off with ½ - 1tsp amount of marshmallow. Next fill the rest of the holder with cake mix. Quarterjack Mews, East Street Wimborne Minster, Dorset 5. Bake in the oven for 18 minutes or07760 until golden Tel: 441830 brown and leave to cool for 2 more minutes. 6. To make the buttercream whisk the butter until light and fluffy and gradually add the sugar whilst continuing to mix. We are here

7. Add the milk and vanilla extract to create a light mixture that can be spread easily, Add whatever food colouring you desire as well. 8. Finally spread or if you own an icing kit decorate your cupcakes with the buttercream. 9. Another way to finish off is to leave out the buttercream but serve the cakes with whipped cream and pour hot-chocolate over it instead. © Dean Slocock

1. Pre-heat your oven to 175oC and 12 cupcake holders onto your baking/deep bun tray. 2. Whisk together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy, then add the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl whisk the 3 eggs until smooth as well. 3. Whisk together the butter and egg whilst gradually adding the sieved flour, also add the Guinness at this stage if you want. Continue

‘The Quarter Jack’s Christmas Challenge’ brings Wimborne’s past to life

In December, Wimborne Community Theatre will perform a seasonal presentation of ‘The Quarter Jack’s Challenge’, at two of Wimborne’s most historic buildings: Allendale House and the Priest’s House Museum. Two influential local people, Charles Castleman, former owner of Allendale House, and Hilda Coles, whose vision led to the founding of the Priest’s House Museum, will each host an evening at their respective homes, to which some of Wimborne’s most worthy residents over the last thousand years have been invited. They will be challenged to compete for the title of ‘Wimborne Worthy of Worthies’. Contenders include St Cuthburga, founder of the Minster Church, and Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII, as well as some lesser but equally significant entrants.

Wimborne residents are warmly invited to meet these notables and judge for themselves whose lives we hold in most esteem. Allendale House Manager, Sarah Evans, said: “I am thoroughly looking forward to welcoming WCT back to Allendale House. The performances in June at our Open Day were wonderful and drew a good crowd, so I am hoping that this seasonal twist to the Christmas performance of ‘The Quarter Jack’s Challenge’ will allow even more people to experience the delights of community theatre.” Priest’s House Museum Curator, Emma Ayling, said: “I am thrilled and delighted to host Wimborne Community Theatre which is an incredible community asset. We are looking forward to their performance and it is a wonderful way to start the festive season.”

Allendale House: Thursday December 13th - 7.00 pm Priest’s House: Friday, December 14th - 7.00 pm Tickets: £6 (includes seasonal refreshments) – Please book as space is limited To book for both venues: Allendale House 01202 888992

This week I am to have a meeting with the Council and Dorset Wild Life Trust about the gates and cows on Upton Heath. I will let you know how I get on in my next article. I myself have a four year old who gets very upset at cows suddenly appearing out of the bushes and has not yet learnt how to get through a gate without rushing and slamming my leg against the post. So mostly I ride on the roads, not ideal, but better than upsetting a young horse when I ride alone. I hope I can get something done before someone has a bad accident. I have even had dog walkers that have walked the Hºeath for years say to me that they are now not going as their dogs have been chased by the cows. Wish me luck. Trish 01202 600550

Verwood Mayor’s Blindfold Walkabout International World Sight Loss day was marked in Verwood when the Mayor, Simon Gibson, together with 3 colleagues, were all escorted blindfold around the town by members of the Wimborne & Ferndown Lions club.

The walkabout highlighted the importance of sounds and smells and the many obstacles in a busy town centre such as people, bollards and other pavement hazards.

Photography – LOW VIEWPOINT Uses for a ‘twisting’ viewing screen. We don’t often look up, perhaps to avoid neck ache or possibly because of a natural aversion to looking at the sun. Our ‘upward’ viewpoint is usually restricted to raising the eyes. With tall objects we tend to step back to view the subject but with low subjects we don’t often get down low enough to look underneath. Try getting really low down, almost under a subject and capture a different image. The end result means that photographs taken from under a subject can be surprising, dynamic and eye-catching. Get up close to large subjects such as ships or buildings and look straight up. The falling angle creates tension and drama and we get a very different interpretation of the subject. Some cameras have a rotating viewing screen. With this type of equipment it is not even necessary for us to look up. Photographing low and small subjects it is possible to put the camera close to the ground with the viewfinder titled up and with large subjects tilt the camera upwards while looking down at the viewing screen. Proves much more comfortable for the person taking the photo and offers different image options to usual. Now get out and experiment, the results will make you pleased that you did.
