  1. I'm no expert but looks like it might be a young Wood Warbler, Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler from the shape of thr end of the tail.
  2. I am 72 years old and I have never seen 30cms of lying snow where I have lived in this country, let alone that much in 24 hours.
  3. Yep. Between 5 and 10 claps of thunder, some quite close, and a brief but heavy hail shower. Had several showers the last couple of days but not much rain as my water butt which I had half emptied topping up the pond has only just filled up. Since it receives water from half the roof plus the garage it shows how brief the showers have been.
  4. Sublimation wouldn't cause melt ponds as, because as I understand it, it is the process of a solid becoming a gas without going through the liquid stage.
  5. The lavendar in both my front and back garden was covered in Red Admirals yesterday and there's at least a dozen on the one outside my lounge window at the moment. Not many other butterflies though - just the odd white around.
  6. I can't believe that if someone is thinking of spending £15K or more on a new car that an annual tax of £140 would be enough to stop them buying.
  7. My niece is a GP and works 3 days a week - that what she gets paid for. She regularly puts in a 50 hour week with paperwork, running the practice and other meetings she has to attend taking up hours of time that she would prefer to spend with her kids. I suspect its the bureaucracy that puts doctors off becoming GPs.
  8. Have you considered that perhaps he wasn't invited. It seemed to be an event that was only open to those invited to go, which is logical as otherwise the whole thing would have been unmanageable.
  9. Well we've just had a tremendous storm here with lots of lightning, thunder and torrential rain. Only saw one or two cloud to ground flashes as most were inthe cloud. One was immediately overhead which (a) scared the living daylights out of me and (b) nearly deafened me as it was so loud. Its now drifted away northeastwards and the clouds were a fantastic pinky orange colour.
  10. Personally I think the lunatics took over the asylum a couple of years ago.
  11. Becoming paranoid? I think you left a "more" out between those words.

    Maybe you should say exactly the same to Russia.
