It is now known that Neaderthals were far more sophisticated than once thought, and that as they interbred with Homosapien all of us have some Neanderthal DNA. It is thought this makes us resistant or ...

I have been recording sightings of first bluebell leaves in the wood for about 20 years now. They seem very random, and this year is a lot later than most. Also record when the wood anemones and blueb ...

Our water supply company is quite reasonable. They have always been a relatively small local private company so have their own interests at heart about pollution in their supply. The sewage company is ...

I would certainly agree that most modern humans don't have the skill of our ancestors in any one of a number or things they used to live, work etc. Perhaps the estimate of the number of people needed ...

We saw white admirals and possibly wood whites last year, but I wouldn't know a grayling if I saw one, so not sure about them. We have silver washed fritillaries but not pearl bordered. One problem wi ...

Any idea what sort of owl Dpack? We get quite a lot of tawny owls in the woods. I expect we will start hearing them soon as they pair up.

I will look into that. I can't see the supply company accepting it as there are levels of pollutants that are allowed, and above that the water supply could have to stop.

Our water company has a very good record for clean water Slim. There are also very strict rules in the UK about drinking water quality. The reservoir this is going into is in the joint ownership of ou ...

I was out in the woods working up some coppice on my own yesterday and watching and listening to birds. Saw some tits; think they were bluetits by the acrobatics, but a bit far to see. Also heard a bl ...

Sorry to hear about your mum, but having her recipes is priceless. I have a number of recipes I got from my mum, fortunately when she was alive, but I have never been able to replicate her beautifully ...

We saw one in Devon in the 1970s, but as you say, quite rare. They have been reintroduced in the south and some people feed them. There is one close to a friends house and there are loads there. They ...
