i spent ages seeking the bird hides which were quite well hidden. after playing seek the hide for a while i found one and went in for a my petrol station bought prepacked chicken sandwich. the only birds i saw were 2 pigeons and a crow. oh well.

when i arrived i went the wrong way and ended up going on the adventurers’ trail. although i didn’t see many other adventurers. so it probably should have been adventurer’s trail. am i being preposterophe ? that’s a new word i just made up, combining apostrophe and preposterous.
eventually i found the nice boardwalk bit which lead to the windmill
