Re: Fake News

I probably shouldn't, but I do try to ignore the political views and smearing of the same in the news. I don't like two faced, hypocritical, nor people who create showdowns in public, to besmurge another. I find this to be the behaviour expected of "adolescents" or 2 years old's seeking attention. I...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Yes, all is well with the girls and again it's great to have this forum for advice, especially for very inexperienced owners like me. The girls seem quite happy. They have 2 dustbaths, one is in full sun and the other in full shade. Paving slabs in 2/3 of the run and an area where I put fresh grass ...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

I recall posting here last year for advice on Barbie, who was continuously sneezing, but otherwise had no other health issues. Since October last year, when I decided not to allow them free run of my garden through winter, it became apparent to me that Barbie was no longer sneezing. Took a few weeks...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Isn't it odd how they have these unexplained illnesses or health issues? I remember asking for advice on the forum last year about Barbie, who was constantly sneezing. She was otherwise bright and chirpy. What is now apparent is that since October last year, when I decided not to let the girls have ...

Re: Climate emergency

I have also noticed a decline in bees, so far this year. Last year, I did see huge numbers on my lavender bushes, so I planted another 10, which are almost in flower, so fingers crossed for an abundance of bees soon. I have only seen one swift this year and a massive decline of blue tits and finches...

Re: Jeans

These look really good, Marigold. Not too wide at the bottom, not too narrow. Wonder if my husband will treat me to a pair? ;-) The only problem is knowing the "fit", hence why I prefer to shop in store, or buy from ASOS. Free returns! Does the fact that they are lined make you look larger? My bum i...

Re: Butterfly/moth identification

Hi Marigold Sorry for the late response. The butterfly was approximately 2-3 miles from each site, perhaps closer as "the crow flies" and potentially could be the same one. I first saw it in the afternoon in my garden and then in a meadow near a forest about 4 hours later. My husband saw it, too. It...

Re: Butterfly/moth identification

I wish I had seen it again today. When i saw it yesterday, it was around 8pm, still daylight, it was in a meadow, outside the Sherwood Pines forest. It was definitely bright red, with butterfly shaped wings, not like a month. In my garden, when I saw it, it landed, but flew off quickly, flapping its...

Re: Butterfly/moth identification

No, I looked at that one in google. It's all red, no other colour and it's wings were shaped like a butterfly. I hope I see it again. It was the most unusual thing ive seen, because of the colour.

Butterfly/moth identification

I don't have a photo, unfortunately, but saw a blood red, small butterfly or moth in my garden yesterday. The shape of the wings were butterfly style. No other markings. I would say it was only an inch in size. The odd thing is, when walking in the forest last night, my husband spotted another one! ...
