It’s been 40 years to the day since this absolutely magnificent piece of filth from Frank Worthington vs Ipswich. What a fucking maverick.

Never mind ‘ages’, this is peak. We’re in the the golden era of British TV drama and these two series are in the mix as this country’s finest ever outputs. Hammer them.

Watching them closely, though, and if any of those nets appear or a tree goes down, well.... Maturing woodland is going so well, however, that I’m proud to watch over it. Butterflies are increasing each year and today’s speckled wood was one of many.

Houses are being built close by, which I could be a bit more aggrieved about, but since original planning was granted as a Newcastle overspill in the late 1950s, it’s tricky. Land was poor and builders have been relatively supportive of local wildlife. We’re also getting a pond.

But it is all post-industrial, and there are a lot of reminders around. A local hill looks landscaped but is a spoil heap from colliery days. The ongoing threat of stythe gas necessitates facilities such as this (quite loud) pumping station...

Opens up in places too. A few fires and abandoned trolleys* but, in the main, very quiet making for an important wildlife corridor. Roxy loves it, as do I and as do whitethroats, blackcaps, weasels and rabbits. (* jazz mags a rarity these days)

Adjacent to this is a more dense area of young woodland. Lots of nooks, crannies and leafy avenues. We’ve had around 50-70 species of birds around here, including breeding willow tit, which has become a bit of a national rarity...

This is the main bit for the grasshopper warblers, also a haven for linnet (red listed) and reed bunting. Lots of scrub but few trees. Developers have been building close by....

Aye, so, no grasshopper warblers (or house martins) in my patch as yet, as mentioned earlier. I bang on about it a bit (it’s my chosen dog walking route) on here so here’s a bit of context. Former colliery site, houses (70s onwards) but a wonderful area of scrubby woodland too...

I've just found a needy pebble that's begged me to take it home and turn it into a necklace. What's a boy to do?

I can easily polish this up super shiny and take care of the electrics. A keeper, but I did note recent eBay sale of same item....

important reporting from - she had heard stories from black holidaymakers about experiencing racism when in Europe and wanted to write about it. As a white person I found this really shocking and felt ashamed not to realise the extent of it

I’ve had allotments in the past, these days it’s just herbs that we tend to use regularly, possibly a few salad leaves (eg rocket etc).
