"In Tudor times, Richard Turpyn recorded "an innumerable swarme of whit buttarflyes ... so thicke as flakes of snowe" that they blotted out views of Calais. In modern Britain, swarms of butterflies may be a thing of the past but in the past few days at least, millions of painted lady butterflies have reached our shores after an epic migration from the Atlas Mountains of North Africa."

Sea levels will rise much faster over the next century than has been expected, even if governments are successful at controlling greenhouse gas emissions, scientists warned yesterday.

Advances in the understanding of the mechanisms that control how quickly ice sheets melt have shown that sea levels are likely to rise by a metre before 2100. The estimate is almost double the projection of 20cm to 59cm made in 2007 by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Bass summer 2008
Unicycle 2009
Friday 13th Sunny Le Saie
Young Danny was 15 on Saturday, and as you can see he had a unicycle for his birthday which he mastered in no time at all, sadly later in the day he collapsed and had a brain haemorrhage, and at 2:30 monday morning a helicopter took him to Southampton hospital.

Update: May 30th Tests in April showed a bunch of vessels that needed operating on and this was done on April 20th, Danny is now back at school on a part time basis and has a week for the time said for the healing of the operated area to heal, and then another test in July to see if the operation has been successful. Hopefully some normal activities such as boating and fishing will resume in the coming weeks.

Cheers Nick
