Hi folks, someone here always knows the answer to everything

We have rather a fine video of the great crested newt egg-laying. It's been suggested we send it to Spring watch and the best way to do that is to upload to a sharing vids site.

Is this the way to go and if so which is the best site?

Thanks, we're a bit behind with the modern tech here

It's tough as old boots Lesley and self seeds in out gravel drive. Stands about 4 foot tall if it doesn't fall over

One of mine is dropping its leaves. Not sure if this is ash dieback. How long has that been around?

We've had 2 trees over the past 10 or 12 year that have had a major leaf drop in early summer. They haven't died but there was some die back. One looks very good now, 10 years later. The other still has some dead bits up there

Not worth digging up tcm, seed is the way to go. It will have seeded from a garden it's not a wildflower in the UK.

It is a clematis Victoria.

If there are no tendrils and it's not very big it might be one of the herbaceous ones. 

C. recta maybe?
