      I disagree with you there I've not never heard or experienced anything like that before, London is quite a safe place the safest for its size in the world. Furthermore in some places I feel uncomfortable because I'm white, in Peckham for instance you could feel you're in a mini Africa & you feel like a outsider and I don't like that environment not with malice.

      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 😂😂

      Geordiesnow

      Looking at the Arctic sea ice extent graphs, January is not the lowest on record but its pretty close. To be fair, its not that we are million miles away from previous years either. It seems with this refreezing season, we have been taking one steps forwards, then we get 2 steps back. The summer melt season will be interesting.

      melt starts 1 million below the past 4 years so will finish 1 million below those years?

  8. What a fantastic winter. 100mph winds, heavy snow, hail, rain, graupel, sleet, lightning... And all that only in the last few days whilst on holiday in the NW Highlands *grin*

      OK now its making up for it - right when I have someone coming round for a gardening discussion - you couldn't make it up!

  13. A chilly grey day here, with a generous helping of light drizzly rain on and off throughout the day. To be honest, this is what I expect November to be like, and is worth enjoying of itself. My painful memory of awful July heat is almost healed!

      The very idea of preferring a dank November day to a sunny warm July one seems as crazy to me as preferring the hangover to the drinking session the night before! But different folks and all that...

      After almost 3 weeks of near sunless weather over here I am gagging just to drop myself into July for a few days to charge up.. So draining it is...

      Lucky you - mine holds it off and looses it by 1pm so is cold by evening. Well downstairs is anyway -case of heating on downstairs, window open upstairs sometimes.

      If my house gets cold now I just put a jumper on. I refuse to have heating on in May, no matter what the weather is.

      I could do that but my life wouldn't be worth living. She gets cold so if I'm in a jumper she's in hat, gloves & six jumpers!

      It was down to 3c this morning - so need a little heat or its freezing when you get up.

      As soon as these reports surface the exact opposite always happens, we need the above as the next headline.

  21. A glorious day up here. I genuinely dislike summer weather, with long days, sunshine and heat - but today was different. A reasonably long daytime, sunshine and a warmth in the sunshine, but a genuine chill in the shade. Perfect (-:

      Not warm nights, evenings. Once the sun goes down it gets a little chilly, just enough to comfortably sit outside.
