23rd August. have posted a fantastic set report - read on.......

Well, after a long time in traffic, and me nearly having a heart attack because I thought they would be gone, we made it to Virginia Water, Surrey. It's a lovely place - perfect for the Harry Potter films.

The second I walked up to the fence covered in a horrible green gauze mesh (presumably to stop the photographing everyone wanted to do) I could see a whole range of cast members. Rupert Grint (. you just wait), Devon Murray (Seamus Finnegan), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Alfie Enoch (Dean Thomas), Joshua Herdman (Gregory Goyle), Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe), Emma Watson, Tom Felton and Robbie Coltrane. Daniel Radcliffe seemed to spend the entire day hiding, as did Tom and Emma, which disappointed a lot of young fans.

They were filming the hippogriff scene again today, with regular breaks, in which I viewed (several times -well, I was there all afternoon, you know!) the kids running away from what must have been the hippogriff stand-in of a big mechanical thingy, and then carefully approaching it again after about minute. The filming of this seemed to take all day, although I was told that that morning, David Thewlis had been on set and had been filming round the corner with Radcliffe at a different set.
