There are old saltings in the harbours along the south coast. Some couldn't be resurrected as things stand because of pollution, but they would have produced something similar in the past I suspect. P ...

We have more open ground, apart from trees, so peregrines tend to come down from the sky. Result is sometimes a dropped pigeon and the peregrine doesn't seem to follow down and either pick them up or ...

I am sure it will, but it is currently a major problem in cities with terraced houses. There are cars parked nose to tail either side of the road all along the road. Perhaps better public transport, a ...

On street charging still seems to be an issue though. There was a report in our local paper that a whole load had been turned off by the provider for 'safety reasons'. No idea why.

The BBC has had a political head to it for some years and they are terrified of having their licence money removed, therefore taking a rather pro-government line is not unexpected.
