Certainly I think behaviour evolves relatively quickly, if not genetic adaptions. There are a number of woodland species that have evolved alongside management by man, but with lack of management over ...

Nice pictures Dpack. The robin is very much in charge in the yard. It was shouting defiance at another Robin on Sunday, and also popping into the shed in defiance of my prohibition. We have been chatt ...

Small world Tahir. My grandparents move further out later, and when Mum and Dad were going out together, Dads parents lived in north west London, so he could recite the names of the tube stations righ ...

My mother was brought up in Forest Gate. She claimed to be a Cockney, but Dad said the wind would have to be blowing a gale in the right direction for her to be one.

Your grandparents did very well then. My mother was one of 7 and 4 survived to full adult hood with one other dying I think in her late teens or early 20s. They did live in London though. Two of them ...

You must either have a very large family or have collected them from all over the world. I thought the Canadian branch of my family was pretty large, but you have certainly outdone them by a very larg ...

That is a beautifully designed building. I agree with you Tahir, that it looks as if it blends in well in all directions. The architect understands the material, and the use of curves, which seem anat ...

The first Jack Russell I met was charming. She was bought for ratting, but preferred stones or trouser legs. It was in the days of flares, so she used to love to play by grabbing the trouser leg, and ...

Good to see so many rehomed. Jack Russells are a difficult breed; I have known two lovely ones, but still wouldn't trust them with a baby or small child, but one a neighbour had was a vicious thing. W ...

We may have a new robin in the 'yard' in the woods. It seems to be a young one as it is quite tame. It likes the crumbs from my home made biscuits, and yesterday, for a moment, sat on my knee. It won' ...

Death caps and parasol mushrooms in Britain are sufficiently different for me as a not too expert to distinguish. One guide to death caps is that they have the remains of a sheath at the bottom of the ...

I suppose mice use their tails for balance, but are they so essential to ordinary mice? I know harvest mice tails are prehensile, and they would find it very difficult without, and dormice use theirs ...

Another problem for species like marsh tits is lack of nest sites. Most trees are kept 'tidy' in urban environments, which limits their nest sites. Houses made without holes limit nest sites for house ...

Some moths have got lovely patterns haven't they. Some have nice names associated with the patterns too, but can't remember any offhand.

When I came home yesterday there was a blackbird foraging ar ...
