Newts tend to like piles of rubble and stone to hide in.ive never seen a newt in a wet area
Nick...
Hi when working in a near by quarry i had the job to clear out all the new saplin trees and grass growing i part off a disused quarry we had to do one sixth every year so it all got cleared in six years bit it grew over in 2-3 as the sediment in the bottom was so rich in nutrients
They come out newt counting every year or so recon its one off the highest. Number off newts in the country
Its only a foot deep at the deepest

Getting caught up with the plough now. Ploughing round about cows! Not looking too bad for having been outside since April.

This is Livestock/Arable which a lot of you guys seem to get excited about. This field will be drilled with spring barley in next fortnight. Weather permitting. Cut mid August. Stubble turnips drilled straight after. Cows on early November, come off now to come inside to calve. Starting next week. After they've calved they'll be fed draff, which is a by product of whisky production. Which the malting spring barley is being grown to produce malt for whisky. They'll be bedded on straw from spring barley thats grown in these fields and the muck will go back onto these fields. But beef production is inefficient and destroying the planet.

I know my front windows disgusting.

Written by Billy Wickham

Farmers in Shropshire have planted nearly 4,000 native trees after Severn Trent gave out tree-packs at two local events, to test engagement and appetite for tree planting on marginal land.

Dr. Alex Cooke, Severn Trent senior catchment scientist, explained that due to such a high level of take-up from farmers, the water company is now looking into rolling out the scheme...
