There seems to be an issue with uploading these - may take some time - I'll try again later, if necessary.

I will also attempt to upload some photos taken at Monterey Bay Aquarium - California.

Some great photos there Jane, that spider is brilliant. The Redwood has to be the ultimate 'Specimen' tree. The Acer Palmatum, stunning tree. It's not just the colours is it, it's the delicacy of the leaves. I tried to grow the Deshojo cultivar as indoor bonsai a few years ago, a bit silly i know but Rapid were selling them as 'indoor' bonsai at the time, pretty unscrupulous.

For anyone who's interested, there's only one species that will survive more than a couple of years in a centrally heated room, Ficus. The Olive is a nice tree to grow on a window cill of a unheated room.
Nice to see you haven't forgotten the birds in your garden

We have our 'birdy' regulars: mostly wood pigeons, but also a regular family of blackbirds.
Since the plant life has grown up a bit - we started from scratch - we get more small birds now also. Recently we have been getting the odd Fieldfare too.

I love Acers - we have a few; we brought some of the young specimens with us from our garden in Stroud.

My grandfather had an aviary in his garden in West Derby, and my mother has a special affinity with birds. I have grown up with these influences - so i enjoy birds; in fact, I have a budgie - 12 years old now! - her rather aggressive mate died a couple of years ago.

When living in Gloucestershire I kept rabbits & guinea pigs.

OJ & GV living where I am we are really fortunate to see a wide range of British birds, we've feeders hanging off the garage and distributed throughout the garden and the diversity is really quite formidable.

Hope this is not boring but the regular feeder visitors include Tits (Long-tailed, Blue, Great etc) a Wren or two, Sparrows, Goldfinch, Chaffinch and occasionally the resident Robins, but they do not appear to know how the seed feeder works.

The Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch and Fieldfare make less regular visits but try to appear about three times a week.

Sitting under the feeders (and peanut/fat ball) are the Jay, Magpies and Collared/Stock Doves and the usual Blackbirds and Starlings. That diversity also attracts birds of prey and additionally some nice surprises.

Having seen Jane's photos of the Allerton oak i had to see it. Luckily i was able to squeeze a viewing in of All Hallows Church as well. Sleepy Hollow is a fantastic tree and worth the visit to the park alone but i was very impressed with the park itself,well maintained and clean.

Mute Swan and Coot in Calderstones Park today. Neither of these birds bred in city 30 years ago, now they can be found in most of the city's large parks.
