    Deeply jealous. Though a pair roosted in our eaves in Wembley as usual this year, the most I've seen in the sky is four. Last year was an average year, with up to fifteen at a time.

    That's ridiculous.

    Mind you, it needn't be too much of an issue. I used to enjoy diving out of Portland on Protector, skippered by Ivor Jansen. It was a big RIB with a cabin and a lift; on scallop...

    Nice. I saw my first thornback round there too. My favourite memory of White Nothe, however, wasn’t a drift. I spent most of that dive above a field of burrowing sea cucumbers, almost mesmerised by...

    I hate camping wit a vengeance, but I think your statement is ridiculous.

    It's a really neat little stove, so of course you need it. What sort of man are you?
