There are five new photographs on the Photo page, starting from number one. A few photographs were sent in today so we are able to put five on tonight.


The Italian Chapel made by the Italian prisoners of war at Scapa Flow on the island of Orkney. It was made from a nissen hut and concrete used to build the Churchill barriers on Scapa Flow. Lindsay.

Newquay Harbour. Wales. Judy.

I’ve seen these sheep several times and thought they had similar markings to Thornton. Usually I don’t have a camera or am unable to stop the car. Today, however, Chris was driving and I DID have the camera! I’d always thought that only Rams had horns, but now I find that in some breeds Ewes also have them. I was going to ask whether Thornton’s Mum had ever been to Barrow Gurney where these were photographed. (I remembered that you were unsure of Thornton’s paternity!!!)Julia.

I took this picture of this unusual looking tree at Savil Gardens in Surrey. Bec.

We saw our first Swallow of the year yesterday evening. As I went into the Barn to get the Badger food, one flew out. It must have missed hitting me by a whisker, It frightened the life out out of me. A few years ago before I did the webcams one hit me in the side of the head. It didn’t do either of us a lot of good. The Swallow fell to the ground, I thought that it had killed itself. I picked it up, after a minute or so it flew away. I will try to get the camera working in the Barn why they are building their nest.

We have had another pair of Geese hanging about around the Lake for most of the day. The two pairs have been honking awasy all day long. The new pair landed on the Lake a couple of times, that put the resident Gander on the war path. Other than the Moorhens and Coots he chases off everything that he sees, including Tass and Kye, so with a bit of luck and the Ganders aggression the Gosling when they hatch may survive this year.
