I haven't been to the woods for a couple of ...

We occasionally have birds fly into our bedroom window. No idea why as there is a lot of creeper round it, so wouldn't have thought they would want to get entangled with it anyway. Plus is that there ...

I think the earliest archaeological records are in pottery. Whether the baskets were lined with clay or were used to support the clay until it was fired seems to be a moot point, but either way it is ...

Those are really lovely pictures and something I think a lot of people miss. I have a pair of robins that live somewhere around the fruit trees, and usually come out to see me when I go down there. We ...

A good basket kept dry will last for years. Our heavy duty willow log basket has been in use now for over 40 years. We don't carry it in full of logs any more, but it is still intact and gets moved ev ...

Think our crop in the south was quite good. We had a reasonable crop on our trees, but they are not in a very good place, so cropping is rather poor.

Currently getting Ashmead Kernel from a farm s ...

The company you got the nets from are still trading as far as I know. I think I saw an advert from them recently. I bought 2000 last time, so still have some, although I think I may need to buy some m ...

Not had it, but think so. We don't have any guns or licence for that sort of thing, but it might be worth while getting someone in if they become a problem. Although we have heard them our end of the ...

We have quite a good one, but sadly neither husband nor I am sure what make it is. Will try to find out. It does good quality pictures during the daylight and enough to tell you what the animal is in ...

We have what we call a log store, which is a sort of miracle of water pipe and scaffold poles in the shape of a polytunnel with a clear plastic over, but we still can't get stuff really dry as we are ...

No wildlife to report, but walking down through the wood it was so silent. Very little wind, and in the valley no sound at all.

Can;t remember the name of the ones I have at the moment. A bit has come out under the toe, but still perfectly waterproof and a nice wide foot. I had to get a size larger as there is a rubber wrap ar ...
