Can't believe brilliant Giles mentioned my butterfly DVD on : "With a five-hour [splutter!] running time that'll keep me going all evening". Five hours is really bingeing butterflies.

A Peacock, moments before (and after) emergence from one life to another. I can't think of a more beautiful species & have always adored them. Every child should rear some & then they'll be beguiled by butterflies for life I reckon!

Two impressions after popping into 20 primary schools to give them 1. primary schools are full of amazing people 2. school secretaries are perhaps the most amazing of all.

Tip for anyone donating to schools – if you take photos of yourselves like we did, check with the school first or else you may get told off! And perhaps better not to look like Henry here.

Ah: Defra is also opening consultation on extending badger cull to "low-risk" bovine TB areas So it's probably cull like hell until scientific review gives us an escape route out of this mess.

Is gov about to change its tune on badger culling? Review of bovine TB strategy announced, reporting Sept. Pro-cull farming minister George Eustice says "While the badger culls are a necessary part of the strategy, no one wants to be culling badgers forever."
