  1. Those Arctic ice stats are worrying.

      And he's a civilian with no particular interest in the weather i.e. a target "member of the public".

      Although we had a fox earlier in the winter, not seen it around here for a while now.  I live on the edge of woodland/300 acre farm.  We have badgers and some deer and a two male pheasants called Sparky and Pierre.  In fact just come in from the cat pen and did hear some real strange noises coming from the woodland.  It wasn't badger noises and wasn't the usual deer barking....spooky 😳😱.  Lassy - one of our foster kittens after being rehomed was attacked by a badger (was witnessed) and unfortunately had to have her back leg amputated as a result.

      i never knew badgers attacked cats

      I know, it shocked me also but it is the second time I've come across it.  A local lady had her elderly cat attacked by a badger too.  I used to have the badgers in my garden and one did investigate the cat flap once but as they do so much damage digging everything up I served them an ASBO although they do try and dig under the top fence every so often.  They're proper vandals 😂😂

  5. -3.1°C at 13h00. Quite the cold spell.

  6. Supermarkets note: -5C rated screenwash is not four seasons.

  7. The wind is blowing a hoolie down the valley again. The pine trees can be heard shouting to each other.

      Happened here once last winter. One of the most infuriating things for snow lovers. Worse than missing out altogether. 

  9. Two weeks of cold rain up to 250m? Marvellous +roll eyes+

      Whenever he screeches, shout his call back at him so he thinks a bigger owl is in his territory, the neighbours will love it too 😋
