My guess is condensation - perhaps some insulation in the roof might help?

Large bird of prey

Jim - so exciting - it really does sound as if you saw a Hen Harrier - we occasionally see them in Suffolk - wonderful birds.  Yours may possibly have been moving northwards towards their breeding grounds on the grouse moors - a little early in the year for this to be happening, but it's an odd year!

Please report your sighting to the RSPB - Hen Harriers are such an endangered bird it's important that they keep track of as many as possible

Oh Tracey - that's really exciting - is the weather as good where you are today as it is here (so far)?


Oh yes, you've said it is - I must learn to read

Good morning all - stomping done in the daylight - I saw a lovely clump of little dark purple iris underneath a Viburnum Bodnatense - they looked gorgeous 

Can you just stop talking about cake at this time in the morning please - it's a Fast Day here!!! 

Compost question

And if you know anyone who keeps guinea pigs, chicken or goats get some manure to add to the compost - wonderful activator

Heated seats Punkdoc - my son used to laugh at me when I had the smallholding - he said I had the ultimate Yuppie conundrum - how to drive a car with heated seats when wearing a long waxed riding coat 

Talkback: How to grow autumn-fruiting raspberries

I planted mine last February and they were fine.  They're alongside a fence and when they grew I just restrained them by running a wire along to keep them from whipping about in the winds.
