    African or European swallow?

    I also found a new conker tree in the ground under the wood store, coming from a full size fresh conker. The nearest tree is half a mile away as the very fit crow flies. I guess it has to be a rook, no squirrel is going to bother going that far. The walnut tree that appeared a couple of years back remains a mystery - no trees in the nearest 3 villages AFAIK.
    I have found broken hazel nut shells in my garden. No idea where the nearest tree is. Could have come from a supermarket though.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    We give 350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.

    We threw the remains of our Christmas nuts out for the squirrels (we have 5 including an albino). How far are you from the south East?
