Son agrees with the source being the 1970s law, but he thinks there might be a small breeding colony. There have been sightings round here for a very long time. The latest was by a man walking his dog ...

Amazing Jam Lady. You worked hard for the food bank, so deserve some for yourselves. Sadly peaches, if they grow at all here, are very erratic in their fruiting. I think they need a nice warm wall and ...

It depends on how long you want them to last. I would ask what the gravel boards have been treated with. I think they are down to about copper now if they are treated softwood, and it doesn't work. Ex ...

We have a wild cat that we think roams along the South Downs Way around the Hampshire/Sussex border. Husband and son have definitely seen it, and I think I may have done, but thought it was a dog, so ...

Certainly helpful as most plant books don't give the seed unless they are the only means of identifying different types.

We have just about got settled after Charfest and managed to load the kiln again yesterday. Monday I suddenly remembered about 5.45pm that I had a Trefoil barbecue that I had to be at by 6.30, so mad ...

I think Dpack was adding to the list of carrion eaters that we have in the UK. You seem to do things a lot bigger in the US, perhaps because the distances are so much greater. Those great horned owls ...

We tend to get magpies and crows which are quite a lot smaller than that Jam Lady. They still seem to do the job though.

I picked some more blackberries last night. There was a young blackbird on the ground near the bush which scuttled off under cover when I arrived. Not sure how much I have picked, but all in the freez ...

Found some cudweed yesterday, Gnaphalium uliginosum. It was where I had found it before, but couldn't find any last year so was afraid it had died out. Also found some guelder rose last weekend in the ...

That is always another problem Buzzy; if you live in the middle, you don't. Glad to say the road works are finished now, so life is back to normal in the middle of the village and we have a choice of ...

I haven't seen it, but the peregrine could be about again as I have found feathers down the garden a couple of times lately, so could be from a couple of ex-pigeons.

I will be visiting a site I know where there is chicken of the woods in about 3 weeks, so will look out for it. I will leave it where it is though. As it has been very dry here it might not have come ...
