    Very true - almost every single hamlet/village around here has its own church. Some of them are beautifully kept (Bloxholm being a wonderful example) but many are in a poor state which is so sad. Plenty to photograph though.

    Gamekeepers used to do that. I haven't seen it since I was a boy.

    It was in Teesdale. I've never seen it before. Found it very shocking. I hope the picture communicates this.

    Indeed it does. Good photojournalism…worth sending to the local newspaper?

    Not the best image for farming to present to the public. The mole catcher is probably paid for each mole caught and this is a of proving how many have been caught.

    Sadly molehills ending up in silage or haylage can cause serious disease in cattle and sheep. It is necessary to try to control them. The traditional approach of trapping has returned following the ban on the use of strychnine poison.

    Can't quite remember exactly where this was, but somewhere near Loch Craignish, south of Oban. Amazing volcanic rock strata all over the beaches there. Folded like paper.

    A quick iPhone snap from this morning;

    Both an Ashy Mining Bee and a Broad-margined Mining Bee, on one of our astrantia. Will hopefully continue to get more varieties of bees in the garden over the next few weeks.

    And this is the Ashy Mining Bee by itself;

    not been following thread...not a car fanatic, but a pal and I do a rough bug count to prove his theory that coronavirus = cleaner roads + less farm chemicals = more bugs. seems true last year. For year the car has been 'too clean' on long drives but now, some spattering returns. Great stuff.
    Nice pic btw.

    Thanks Martin, and everyone else. Good to get out a walk along the beach this morning;

    The tide was just beginning to come in, and about twenty minutes later, this figure was at least knee deep. Amazing how fast the water can move.
