Took this one yesterday.  Note the millipede it's caught - don't know if it ate the creature, it would be like us trying to eat a six-foot-long sausage!!!

According to the calendar we are in January, the middle of winter.  This pic was taken yesterday (Thursday 23rd January 2020) ... bees on a rhododendron that was in full flower (one of many in Bodnant Garden).

Plenty of colour, the visitors are amazed at just how much there is.
The WA has, at best, a mixed track record of encouraging investment and councils tend to be far worse.
This is not local, but shows the thinking ( or lack )  of Councils etc. I think my views on grants/funding/loans to private companies are known, and this seems to prove the point.

The controversial renovation of a Grade II* listed building as a luxury hotel has secured council funding.
Cardiff council has approved a loan - believed to be about £2m - to the owners of the city's Coal Exchange.

"controversial Liverpool company Signature Living."

The renovation was partly funded by private investment, with investors purchasing individual rooms for tens of thousands of pounds.
Rooms were then leased back to the hotel owners in return for an annual dividend of about 8% and the opportunity to eventually sell the rooms back to the hotel for a profit.
However, investors in other another Signature hotel said they have been through "a nightmare" trying to get money from the company.
( sound familiar )

On a much happier note we later watched Spy in the Wild on BBC 1.   What an incredible bit of filming as camouflaged spy cameras go undercover in the animal world.  That's one we will definitely watch next week[/quote]

Hugo, your post reminded me, that I have been meaning to check out game camera's, for use in the garden, my quick search was quite surprising,............ a Victure Wildlife Camera 16MP 1080P Trail Game Camera Motion Activated Infrared Night Vision with 2.4" LCD Display IP66 Waterproof Design for Outdoor and Home Security, for £31.88,......... considering the price I will be looking into further, and I suspect so will you.     

Thanks for posting that info Steve, it sounds like a good camera and at a great price too.     I'm sure that you'll be surprised at the visitors that come to your garden including those Goats!
My neighbour used a similar camera and this is one of her results, we have it framed on our lounge wall

RHOS-ON-SEA residents are being urged to on the look out after an attempted scam in the area.

A suspicious man has been reported to North Wales Police claiming to be from the Royal Mail.

In a Tweet, a spokesperson for police said: "When asked for ID he ran away. Anyone who is genuine will always be happy to provide ID and wait if you wish to verify it."
