I am glad to say that our markers for a good eco-system in the UK are a little less wild. I know that man has rid us of most of the big ones, but the little ones still give good indicators here and ar ...

Thanks DD, but I have gone by the guidance of others more experienced. Being a member of a coppice group, we have people who have many years experience, and most of them are willing to pass their know ...

I often see young wrens in the late spring/early summer as mum is calling them away from paths in the woods. They nest round the house too, so frequently hear them, but see them less often.

I saw ...

Oh dear, vehicles can be a problem sometimes. Hope both are sorted completely and quickly. If you can find out what is causing your allergy as well, that will help Gregotyn. Have you been eating or us ...

Rats are a nuisance, but they often seem to move on after a while. We had some in our yard in the wood for a while. I am afraid we had to resort to poison in the end, but were very careful with placem ...

It would be an interesting one Henry. I had to look it up, but it seems to be something about the composition of earthworms.

Hope the motor is all right Gregotyn. One of our trucks went in ...

Yes, recharging is a problem, particularly for long distance lorries and tractors. As far as farm tractors are concerned they can be recharged at the farm buildings where they have power. As far as fo ...
