We saw white admirals and possibly wood whites last year, but I wouldn't know a grayling if I saw one, so not sure about them. We have silver washed fritillaries but not pearl bordered. One problem wi ...

Any idea what sort of owl Dpack? We get quite a lot of tawny owls in the woods. I expect we will start hearing them soon as they pair up.

I will look into that. I can't see the supply company accepting it as there are levels of pollutants that are allowed, and above that the water supply could have to stop.

Our water company has a very good record for clean water Slim. There are also very strict rules in the UK about drinking water quality. The reservoir this is going into is in the joint ownership of ou ...

I was out in the woods working up some coppice on my own yesterday and watching and listening to birds. Saw some tits; think they were bluetits by the acrobatics, but a bit far to see. Also heard a bl ...

Sorry to hear about your mum, but having her recipes is priceless. I have a number of recipes I got from my mum, fortunately when she was alive, but I have never been able to replicate her beautifully ...

We saw one in Devon in the 1970s, but as you say, quite rare. They have been reintroduced in the south and some people feed them. There is one close to a friends house and there are loads there. They ...

That sounds like an excellent idea. I remember a woman who could smell some disease, which I can't remember, so dogs ought to be better at it.

Continuing with red kites; I was walking down to our local shops yesterday when a pair of kites gave me a wonderful flying display. There was a fairly brisk northerly wind, and one of them was ...

There was a halt on building more houses round our way for a bit because of the nitrogen enrichment, but think that has been 'sorted' now. The company that deals with our sewage has been fined very la ...

Think that post went into the wrong place Dpack.

Back on wildlife, I was about half a dozen red kites the other day further south than I had seen them before but about 5 miles.
