This is where we have our say on what we have been doing, what we want to do, what new products we may be introducing, and more often, having a bit of a rant about the Government, plastic, fracking......you name it.

  1. Do you have Tawny Owls in your neighbourhood?  If so the BTO would like to hear about it, for a survey.  In fact, if you do not have them they want to hear about it too!  All you have to do is listen out for them for about 20 mins a night and go on to the website to help them understand what is going on with our owls. See above link.

    Whilst you are outside listening, see if you can hear the "peep, peep" calls overhead of migrating Redwings which will be on the move now, and often fly at night.

    Autumn is a brilliant time to spot migrants, and if you are out walking in the woods and wild places keep your eyes and ears open for the deer rut and the bellowing males locking antlers to defend their rights to the females in the herd. Love this time of year.......

  2. Did you watch it last night?  I knew it would be horrifying, but the sight of those Shearwater chicks dying from OUR plastic, as well as the seals and whales entangled in bits of fishing line and net, made me cry.  We must do better.  I felt a little bit impatient with the fishermen who doggedly persist in using the plastic lines, knowing full well the damage that they are causing.  Livlihood?  Well, we all know no job is for life, and people have to change and adapt and learn new skills, I have had to over the years, so why is it the minute someone in a job that damages the environment, bleats about their mortgage do we all say "ok, carry on then"? The rest of us have to re-train and lump it!  Fishing is causing damage to our oceans FULL STOP.
