Some things that caught my eye this week:
- £1000 reward for information on injured Buzzard in Yorkshire
- science and technology committee thinks that EU rules on GM crops are holding us back
- planet earth is a sick patient says future king
- Sweden’s racist bird names – do we have any of our own? Or any bird names that are offensive in any way?
- Martin Harper’s blog features Sir John Randall’s speech on a Nature and Well-being
- Tony Juniper’s manifesto for nature – I will review his book here on Sunday
- take note – the badger cull will continue under a Tory government
- it’s still a bit nippy but spring is on the way. I used to hope to see a Brimstone in February each year but now I hardly get out at all! Have you seen any butterflies yet?
- there are snowdrops all over the place of course, and a couple of flowering primroses in my garden – any signs of spring in the plants near you?
- do the sums add up on Indian tiger increase?
- has Labour stopped attacking the Greens?
- Patrick Barkham on Lodge Hill, Rampisham Downs and that quarry with the horrid spider in it.
- Matt Shardlow of Buglife blogs on Fineshade Wood
