    Pretty insect

    I'm in my 78th year and 'lived' in the countryside all that time and it is the first I have seen. Also known as the cuckoo wasp as it lays it's eggs in bee's nests and the offspring eat the hosts young.

    Baltic winds return to the Wolds.

    It was a cold enough wind down near Stamford yesterday as well. I got tucked into the Landie. Can imagine a few degrees lower out on the Wolds. Some exciting shooting, takes some beating.

    Spring pest control

    Nice. I do most of my rabbit jobs during the last two hours before dark OR an hour at dawn can be fruitful.

    Go to the front of the class Jim London. Never seen one before but my Observers Book (Circa 1952) of common British insects lists it. Ruby Tail is correct Chrysis Ignita

    I was just moving locations this afternoon and came across this field of ... I'm not sure any ideas ? In the picture are 17 fallow does grazing the field of wheat. My new blind/cabin had a lodger. I had been sat there eating my lunch when I looked up. Ooooops!! Need to spray that.

    Disappointed, just three today, when I was expecting to see more movement. I did actually bag a quite unusual quarry. One tree rat came out and I shot at it. The rat just looked up to see what the noise was. I couldn't believe I had missed and fired a second which killed the tree rat no problem. I sat back and then the reason became obvious. Check the pibctures. Also a pic of one of my ally models replacing one they had begun to chew holes in. Need to give it a spray with some matt black me thinks. Anyway up rated the total to a nice round 670

    Woodburner tax

    They can only put regulations on NEW log burners. All historic fitments do not fall within the regulations. My Clearviews produce little or no smoke. Had a jackdaw nest recently and the chimney sweep could not believe how clean my chimney was(apart from the nest) when I told him the burner had been in for 15yrs. The one in our kitchen fitted 28yrs ago, a large version, produces about two handfuls of fine grey dust each year. Original airflow design and in my view still the best if not the cheapest.
