Cadman’s Pool.

After getting our COVID booster shot today we headed into the New Forest. Cadmams pool near Stoney Cross Airfield. Opened in 1942, it served both the Royal Air Force and United States Army 9Air Forces. During WW2 it functioned primarily as a combat bomber and fighter airfield. It closed in January 1948.

Locals routinely leave birdseed on the ground or on posts in the copse next to the pond, So it is a good place to spot some of our small woodland birds close up.

Male Chaffinch.


Coal Tit.


Marsh Tit.

Marsh Tits and Willow Tits are very similar and difficult to tell apart, here at Chapmans Pool it was the Marsh Tit enjoying the sunflower seeds.

You are never far from deer or fungi in the New Forest.

      • I was hoping it would fade away like SARS. It’s very hard to predict though you are probably correct about the yearly shot. I think I mentioned before that Moderna is developing a combo vaccine which suggests that COVID is here to stay. I received the Moderna booster this morning.

  2. I got my Moderna booster the day after it was allowed for 65+ … I was glad to take it as we are the worst state in the nation right now for not only COVID cases/deaths, but also the flu. Got a shot for that as well in September. Your little Coal Tit is like our cute Chickadee and I always like your Robins better than ours which are huge.
