  • Alan
    No I missed it Wendy

    Now I've stopped laughing I can tell you it was about the trees in Sheffield & the 'right to ramble' ... S.Yorks side of Peak District!

  • I had 10 minutes to kill while I waited for my connecting train (been to Adwick Washlands not peregrines ) and had enough battery to post those two; here's the plaque.

    I spoke to a guy on the station Wendy and he mentioned it had been from the Longshaw estate.

    There's been hell to pay in Sheffield with the felling of the trees.

  • They did interview some locals & they were pretty irate!

    Never knew before just how many trees though, outnumber the population!

    Yep it was the greenest city in Europe at one bit, not sure if it still is.

  • Knocked off top spot for UK now .... https://thetab.com/uk/sheffield/2017/01/06/sheffield-sixth-greenest-city-uk-19733

  • If the council keep going with the tree felling it's ranking will only get worse.

  • Just       Bl..own in and quickly joined

  • Great stuff Kate ... gutted here to find my tablet recording of Dad on ledge with juvie on nestbox ledge enjoying prey @ 16.44 today is corrupted ... find this out after uploading & editing then it wouldn't save ... grrrrrr!

  • Oh dear Wendy, that must be sooooo annoying..

    One already on the Perch observing a new day...

  • Mrs P supervising the scaffolding

  • Just scap this youngster busy and then flew..

  • Well caught Kate the nest cam has been down for me so tweeted them about 10 minutes ago so not sure if they've fixed it or it was my end that was the problem, I can get it now though.
