  1. My tripod- First Horizon 8115. Quality kit
  2. I’m currently at work but will let you know the one that I bought earlier in the month later. I have the celestron ultimata 100 spotting scope and was struggling to get a decent tripod to support the scope weight. The company I bought it from are Rother Valley Optics in Rotherham
  3. Had our thunder storm about 2 hours ago in Rotherham
  4. Absolutely fantastic report.

    Been today. First time in a long time. Good to see Jonah again though. Only stayed for 40 minutes or so as I was the only one shooting the sporting. I did well(for me) but if I had stayed longer I would have spent a fortune as I was moving through the stands so quickly. One other chap was on the compact stands but other that the place was empty.

    Cheers for the info. I’ll pop over Thursday as it’s shut today
  7. Is Pinewood shooting ground in Blyton still open. I seem to be getting mixed advice?
  8. Same here, wear mine everyday. My best one for social and work. My cheap Wenger for all outdoor activities
  9. My two labs have experienced the issues that you describe. For some reason they get the occasional limp in their front legs. No apparent pain or discomfort just a limp. Checked out by the vet, no physical issues. However he recommended hydro therapy. A few sessions of this cured the problem, I was very sceptical at first but it really worked.

    Small bird ID please

    That’s a young linnet, not fully fledged as yet. The pinkish markings on its head and breast give it away

    The 1980's

    Musically I’d have to go for Big Country or U2. In terms of the videos I’m sure that there a comedy show at the time did a sketch called ‘nice video, shame about the song’ implying that the video was better than the music

    The dawn chorus.

    Not the same in our neck f the woods. We loads of small birds making a din in the morning. Robins, greenfinches, goldfinches,wagtails,blackbirds,greenpecker to name a few. I always open the window to let the sound into the room
  13. Thrutton Long crag and Chatton fly fisheries are pretty small venues. I’ve not fished them yet but have some decent reports from the lads/lasses that have fished them
