Maybush Copse, Cot Lane
A lovely sunny morning after a wet and miserable few days. A great day for a walk around Maybush Copse! What a treat - I was lucky enough to see a stoat, and get a picture. I also saw two clouded yellow butterflies with their wings open, but by then my camera battery was flat!

Please do not trespass on the fields next to Maybush Copse. There is no footpath due south along the edge of the west side of Maybush Copse. When leaving Maybush Copse by the western exit, if you turn left you are trespassing and damaging the farmer’s field. We have the footpath that goes west to Kia Ora by kind permission of the farmer, and dogs must be kept under control. If you continue to trespass, the permitted footpath and exit from (and entry to) the Copse here may be closed.

Spoof News section

(or why you should not believe everything you read on the internet)
What is this word spoof? It has been defined as
1 Nonsense; tomfoolery.
2 A hoax.
3 A gentle satirical imitation; a light parody.
4 The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
But which is it? Tricky, huh?
If you have a Spoof News Scoop, please send it to us, and we will do our best to include it today, tomorrow, sometime or ......well it depends on our lawyers, who we pay handsomely for their 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' advice.

Spoof news
Currently there is not a lot of spoof news. Sometimes there just isn't any news, but it doesn't stop the BBC from filling a half hour slot with no news and repeating the 'no news' every hour on the hour. Here at Chidham and Hambrook, we tell it like it is.
However, we promise that just as soon as one of us gets round to writing some news, we will let you have it, up to the minute, just as its breaking, raw, unvarnished, cliche free, and without any attempt to hide the earth shattering implications for the local community.
Disappointed?
