Re: nature notes

Going a bit nuts with the camera today. Never seen so many mushrooms on our bit of land, normally we only get one variety too. Shows you how warm and wet it has been.

Re: My latest batch

Thanks :). Just to show how much he has grown in just over a week, I took these this afternoon. Also a photo of my moulting Silver Campines feeling sorry for themselves.

Re: Cheery Pics

This is my neighbours beech tree. The spanner that lived here before us planted six of these to make a hedge, right underneath the overhead power lines that supply our little row of houses. Just thought I'd post one of my walnut tree while I was on, probably caught it a week too late.

My latest batch

I took these last week when the birds had just turned 17 weeks, since then the Faverolle lad has grown in spades, he is much broader in only one week on!. It was a disappointing hatch to be honest, very low hatch rate and we ended up with two Andalusians hatching under a broody Sussex (one boy, one ...

Re: Coronavirus

Very good!. Dad's army could probably be applied endlessly to the subject. Edit, just as I was typing this, I heard Nicola Sturgeon use the word "scunnered" in her press conference. The Banter Boys from chewin' the fat must be in raptures.

Re: Cheery Pics

It's a lovely tree!. I wouldn't have pegged it as a beech from that photo, but it looked a lot more "beech like" on the other photo of it that I saw.

Re: Coronavirus

The people who don't take it seriously seem not to care about the knock-on effects for others. For example, the cancellation of crucial hospital treatments meaning that others are left in crippling pain or with untreated heart conditions, kidney stones, unmonitored diabetes etc. I'd impose the maxi...

Re: Cheery Pics

My husband planted a buckthorn here years ago. Blasted thing is popping up everywhere. Think he called it "Sea Buckthorn". Mind you, the birds love it for nesting in. We have a constant battle against the stuff. The pheasants love the berries and end up pooping it everywhere so it springs up all ov...
