Comments: Hi Des, This is Josh, the young chap you met at Old Sneed nature reserve a couple of weeks ago. Just thought I would let you know that I went to Tickenham Hill in search of Adders, but I found 0 snakes. However, the habitat on those south-facing slopes looks ideal! Any tips on where to look on the site? I just checked out your web page. Nice content! Keep up the good work. Regards, Josh Phangurha

Comments: Hello Des You're Right about the swifts. I live at the top of Cromwell Rd where I have a very good view out over the city. I too have noticed the decline of swifts over the past several years. Are there any theories as to why this is occurring that you know of? Regards Terry

Comments: Hello Des, I've acquired the nickname 'Bill Oddie' in my circle of friends 'cos of my alleged knowledge of the wildlife in the area. Suppose I'll have to confess soon that really it's all because of your site, it's a beauty. Are you taking part in the Opal Climate survey? :- http://www.opalexplorenature.org/ClimateSurvey I'm giving a go but it's a bit of a poor showing for observations from Bristol at present. Anyway, thanks for your work & enthusiasm you put in to keeping this brilliant site going.

Comments: Glad your camera-l-is working again.As always your blog is richly informative.By coincidence a week or so ago I came across a handsome moth near my garden pond which you gave me the name of on your entry for 26/6. A scarlet tiger! it was having a day-time nap, basking on a leaf. Another creature you mentioned. I had an azure damsel fly on my new pond.

Comments: Continue to be amazed by the wealth of your observations Des. Sometimes makes me wish I didn't live in the wilds of Somerset. But I did see 3 bitterns last week and they're spreading - any reedbeds in your park?

Comments: Re 23/3, what you didn't tell your readers is what a clever blogger you are. Without your expert and tireless fieldwork, young man, I'd've never clocked that shrike - a bird I've been waiting 50 years to see! By the way, that sub-glottal T in Computer is plebean not affected.
