I’ve been wondering for some time if it would be worth the major crop protection companies shifting their focus from chemistry to ecology- focussing on e.g natural pest control & soil health, & creating value from supporting sustainable yield, rather than units of pesticides sold

"This begs the question: whose emissions are worth compensating? What kind of activities or groups of people have a legitimate claim on residual emissions?" - arguably the key questions on carbon credits and offsetting #ClimateAction #ClimateCrisis

We always try our best to be there for the people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, but messages like this, really affect our teams morale. We are sorry the helicopter wakes people up at night, but it is not our intention to disrupt your evening, but rather save someone's life.

This beautiful kestrel was spotted on the CCTV cameras at Snetterton Circuit, Norfolk earlier this year. Quick thinking Graeme Cameron, who works at the track in race control, was quick enough to spot it "in hunting mode" and zoomed in for a closer look.

Today I will mostly be trying to figure how to house 42 poultry (many feral), because #birdflu lockdown. Cost and supply of timber and wire makes dreams/ idealistic planning a no-go. Thus prepare for creativity & swears. P.S 6 live almost exclusively in a tree. #weepingquietly

This stand Douglas fir has been regularly thinned and just this month had 90m3/ha thinned out of it (CCF conversion). Some but very little blow.. Kepp thinning for climate resilience!
