  2. Clodhopper's suburban wildlife tips

    A fun time of year: the chicks are out of the next and following their parents to the feeders in the garden. I had a family of Great Tits here an hour or so ago - about 6 chicks. Hard to count as they were hopping about. Something else that is really popular in my garden is the birdbath....

  5. George Monbiot and the Irish mink problem

    It's not often I take issue with the chap but he's wrong. Had these people tipped a tanker load of bleach into the headwaters of the river Finn, they would have done less damage. The effects would be horrible for a while, but the ecosystem could then begin to recover. The mink, by contrast, will...

    During the 19th C unlike today when the seemingly insatiable thirst for ivory comes from the East, then it was Europe where the demand was greatest. As a result the elephant, in what is today South Africa was hunted and slaughtered to the brink of extinction. It is to the great shame of our so...

  15. Satellites

    I was using my GPS recently and got to thinking of all the GPS use these days, so I decided to check for illustrations of satellites orbiting the planet. This following attachment really tells the story of our dependence on satellites very well.
