This picture shows Bert dowsing for water, or to be more accurate looking for a leaking pipe. He is using wire dowsers rather than the traditional forked stick. It is wrong to think that special powers are needed for dowsing as anyone can do it with practice. Our friend Dee Mac told us that it is also possible to dowse for bodies. At first we were sceptical about this so we set her the task of finding our old cat’s grave. We gave her a rough idea of its whereabouts and off she set. She located the grave within minutes.
