Re: Has Theresa May shot herself in the foot

This is how people communicate with their Banks online. Get rid of one and the other will be compromised (won't bother me - I don't use online banking)

Unhappy Re: Pensions. Can I speak to a human please!

I had one (1973 7 seat Station Wagon with Safari Roof) for 25 years. It got stolen :(:mad: It would have comprehensively failed its next MOT - rotten chassis. I got a really generous insurance payout...

Re: Few from Oxford using the F

I only managed a snatched snapshot of New College Chapel last year. Have they taken down the prominent "No Photography" signs. I must go back - it is a stunning building.

Re: Wood Anemones

I think they are probably Anemone blanda rather than Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa). A wonderful harbinger of Spring which seeds itself around but not in a weedy way.

Very nice shot.

If it's anything like the ones on my feeders it is - eat one chuck two on the ground, eat one chuck two on the ground... repeat until full.

You may be spared! I'm sure that I read that they have discontinued the Helicopter service blaming cuts.

Re: Jay Close Up

Superb shots. The 75-300 looks a real winner.

Re: And Now For Something Completely Different....

Isn't the duck a female Goosander? She has a large brood anyway. Nice shot of unseemly panic.

Re: Food Riot

A wonderful picture, Andrew.


A chance would be a fine thing. I haven't had a Sparrow or a Starling in the garden (inner suburbs of Manchester) for years. My thuggish squabblers are the...

Re: Unknown Succulent Plant?

Yes - definitely double flowered Kalanchoes.

Google "Kalanchoe"+"double flowers" exactly as written (with the quotes) and there are pictures.

You might get away with growing them outside but...

Re: The antics of a Young Noisy Minor.

Re: First photo of the Autumn season

I think that looks much better. From the OoC I can see your drift though - anything to conquer the grey sky of doom!

Re: After the rain

I think the first 2 are Alchemilla mollis and the other 2 are Hypericum androsaemum (common name Tutsan).

Nice shots, particularly of the Hypericum in No 4

Re: 70-300mm round the garden today

Are you sure that no. 9 isn't Comfrey :confused:. Pulmonaria is usually a flatter, more open flower (not so tubular).
