- I got an email response from SNH today with some clarification of the information on wild hacking. I’ve altered Wednesday’s blog post accordingly. The effect of this is that it appears that the absences of birds at hack were much shorter in time than I had thought – that’s quite important.
2. Labour doesn’t appear yet to have a Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment to replace Sue Hayman.
3. Remember this flood?
This was the flood into which I drove and almost killed my car back in mid-November. But this image is from today. Although this road is less than a mile from home I don’t drive this way very often but I think this is the third time in the last month that the road, which is in the small town in which I live, has been closed for at least a day. It’s on a bus route too. Hardly ideal and mostly, I guess, due to the amount of new building in this area increasing run-off.
4. A bit more on wild hacking. I guess this is the wild hacking site in the Muirkirk and North Lowther SPA
5. A week after the results of the general election became known – how are you feeling? Already it seems that promises of non-regression on environmental standards have disappeared into the air. I’m not feeling great.
