Heard a cuckoo from home yesterday. Thought I did the other day, but wasn't sure. First time we have heard one there.

That makes sense Slim. In the UK 300 miles is usually a lot of motorway driving and some bottlenecks, particularly if going from one side of the M25, which orbits London widely, to the other. Supposed ...

Judging by the increase in kites around here they don't need any encouragement. We have plenty of buzzards in the woods too, so they must find enough to eat. Son things buzzards are lazier than kites ...

Agreed Dpack. The old Ford Ranger/Hilux etc. was the perfect tool for a lot of outdoor workers. Would go virtually anywhere, off road very good with the right tyres, not too bad on road, would tow, ca ...

The report may be right for that place but otherwise is very jumbled. The only rainforest I know is Wistmans Wood on Dartmoor. That is a very special place too. I can understand why you liked it so m ...

That just looks like a big car. Might be very suitable for you Slim, as your needs and conditions are completely different from ours. Be a good thing when those that feel the need for a SUV who don't ...

Again, sad they have to be sourced from China, but looks a sensible option for urban bus routes. Interesting also that they can be charged via a pantagraph; trolley buses used to be used in our local ...

That's good Dpack..

The bluetits in our kiln are feeding young. Husband managed to get an umbilical camera in to look as we wanted to know if they had got chicks or eggs. Parents back feeding with ...

Ofwat has made some bizarre decisions over the years. Our water supply has always come from a private company that hasn't been involved in all this mess and has always been pretty good. They planned t ...

You should have more than enough for food supply next year then. I don't really have time or energy to look after them properly, and the greenhouse needs a rest from them this year, so have mangetout ...

Interesting but I wouldn't call an increase in weight of 20kg 'miniscule'. Especially if the battery ever has to be changed (not very likely except long term I know) it could be the difference between ...

I'm not doing tomatoes this year. With work and not being too well, my gardening is just what I feel I can manage this year. I am hoping to grow peas and mangetout peas in the greenhouse with a couple ...

Interesting. I was aware of lichens and their slow growth. There are also mosses and liverworts that are worth investigation. I regret that at present these are beyond my investigations into the flora ...

I think all of us agree about needing to use more solar, wind and other really sustainable power, about long term insulation and less polluting vehicles etc. We probably disagree about how we get ther ...

We heard a cuckoo in the woods the other day; the first we have ever heard. I think it was just passing through, which is good news for the small birds. The blue tits are still inhabiting th ...
