I have listened to the RSPB one, and can't be sure whether I have heard it or not. We have quite a number of different songsters in the woods, and I am never too sure whether I am listening to one or ...

I will have to listen for nightingales as someone said we had them. We certainly have the right habitat, but not too sure about what they sound like, so have to listen to late night singers when we ar ...

As we were leaving the yard yesterday, saw a couple of jays. By their behaviour, think they were a pair. We know we have jays, but don't see them as often as most other birds.

It is possible that people migrated that way, although humans aren't built to survive such cold temperatures as arctic foxes. However they are very adaptable, and the Inuits so seem to survive in ways ...

In the picture you show it slid down the handle. Does it come off completely for use?

That and other policies certainly seem to point that way. Whether it is deliberate, or just the result of listening only to the big players in any industry I am not sure. Sometimes one policy goes aga ...

It certainly is a good way. We don't see a lot of our wildlife, but get to know their habits by the leavings. The badgers are at the sawdust heap again, so looking for grubs, and found an inhabited ou ...

Interesting design. Son has produced a few tool sheaths, the latest one for a folding pruning saw. It has a belt hanger, and I wore it for quite a while whilst walking in the coppice one day, and foun ...

South Downs Sgt. Colon.

Yesterday we were up there firing the charcoal kiln and had light snow for a good part of the day. I had a few more walks while husband was minding the kiln; one to check w ...

Went for a walk round the woods yesterday, and apart from a dead oak tree that has come down across the public footpath, found quite a lot of interest. The primroses are beautiful, the wood anemones c ...

The best thing to do is to have a chat with the supplier. If they are local artisan producers, I am sure you can spend a long time discussing various charcoals they make. At present, we are mainly doi ...

As someone who managed woodland, please may I ask you to be very careful about the land you rewild. I know a lot of people are keen on this, but I am concerned that a lot of valuable habitat may be lo ...

PostForum: Foraging   Posted: Fri Apr 02, 21 7:52 am   Subject: happy story and a recipe
