Here's some scenic pics of my local park. The park is the old grounds of a Georgian Hall, with a small church, rectory, gamekeeper's house, fish ponds, herb gardens, ornamental lake, a small lane of terraced cottages – all like something out of Jane Austen. The Hall fell into disrepair after the last squire died childless in 1917, and it was eventually demolished in the 1950s when the land was bought by the council and they let all us local oiks in.

Not much going on the park, butterflywise. Saw one speckled wood which buggered off. This huge ivy bush was covered in commas and red admirals last year. This year, nothing...

Here's some colourful oaks leaves instead:

That is really lovely, and I am amazed you see Red Admirals these days because I have not seen one for years.

Space Junk is almost on a par with plastic pollution of the oceans...



How on (sorry off) earth are they going to be able to deal with all that crap? It is so dangerous for spacecraft and they need some huge orbiting fishing net to start collecting the junk
