  1. Well we get the cold in which is the first part of the battle and different to the last few years.... I imagine the models will throw out a fair few solutions over the next day or so!
  2. Looks like it's going to be 5 years with out laying snow for me now looked out the window this morning and nothing! All who have some snow enjoy it!!!
  3. Had some snow earlier now turned to rain, the snow didn't settle anyway. Not even seen a dusting for four years now. those that have snow make the most of it!!!
  4. Not one flake here not even sleet, just rain! Not seen a snowflake for 4 years now... Glad others are having some luck though
  5. Didn't realise that John, will check out the met o site from now on and see if their forecasts are any better! Cheers for the info
  6. To be fair this year for my area the Beeb forecasts have been absolutely rubbish being 9 times out of 10 completely wrong, so much so that on a few occasions I have had to stop myself from being a grumpy old so and so and writing in to complain! Half the time the morning forecast is completely different from the night before and is still utter tosh! This goes for both the national forecast and the regionals, with only the countryside forecast being at least half decent some of the time. My feeling at the moment is that the forecasts can't get any worse......
  7. Ahh it's good to see that this old chestnut is still raging on I remember arguing/discussing with stratos ferric (if I remember the user name correctly) and others years and years ago on here in this section. In the end I have up posting here due to the strong views on both sides. Back then GW seemed almost to be a new religion........ It will be interesting over the next few weeks, to see if anything has changed on either side :o
  8. ello you, hope your well and have been having fun!!

    Thanks just before dawn, very kind of you to say http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif I use a canon 40D with a 400mm lens would love a 600mm or a 800mm lens but they are thousands of pounds!! So have to rely on feild craft and more normally luck!!! I am not so keen on the tree creeper shot and hope to get a better one at some point (fingers crossed) You have a fantastic shot of the Langur, I would have been chuffed to bits to take that one!!
