Hi Sal   There's a blip on the forum that means some people aren't getting alerts to replies - it's on the web-team's To Do list, but it's a long list

As soon as I typed that OH was an hour late I heard his key in the door    Now he's full of beef stew and dumplings and I've done the washing up even tho it was his turn - he's on the sofa with a glass of wine and an edition of 1982 TOTP on the telly.

Verdun - glad to hear your mum's feeling brighter.  As for the mistake -  you won't make it next time

Pdoc - glad you like your new greenhouses - they're on their way - we have a big ship here, we can load them up and send them up the coast to you .  Also, re the crayfish, I think you can get a licence to trap them - you do have a BBQ in your garden don't you

Lovely news about Matty's Tiny One

Those of you in windy areas - batten those hatches down and wear hard hats!

OH said he might be late back this evening - he's an hour late and supper's ready...

Flowers and nuts/seeds are the plant reproducing itself - it has to be reasonably mature to do that

Hi Ben

My initial thought is that using flash for night time photography would disturb the animals and consequentally the results would not be a true picture of what animals usually visit the garden.  Although more expensive, I think that a night-vision camera would be much better.

Mine has been very unhappy since I retired and have had the heating on in the daytime during the colder weather.  They prefer it cooler.  I shall have to toughen up!
