Fly tipping really pees me off. We had a huge pile of building rubble dumped in front of the gate to the horses field (Newton Garth approach road) which would have took days to move if we didn't know a lad with heavy plant gear. Sudder to think what would have happened if we'd needed to get to them quick for vet treatment etc? Even the huge fines and the risk of imprisonment doesn't deter the meatheads ...bladder at boiling point ...

Email update from 38 degrees this morning. Nearly 40,000 have now signed the petition against government plans to scrap key protections for wildlife, the environment and the countryside. If anyone hasn't signed yet, now is the time.

The government has branded protection for the conservation, wildlife and countryside as "red tape". That means, without public outcry, we could see laws scrapped that:

protect wild birds, their nests and eggs
protect national parks and footpaths
prevent smog and air pollution
protect footpaths and access to the countryside
keep the government on track with tackling climate change

The government consultation makes it clear: "the default presumption is that burdensome regulations will go". So we need to speak up! Let's get more names on this petition, and prove that the British public don't think it's "red tape" to be looking after our countryside, wildlife and environment.

The Koi Carp that you mention has been In this lake for roughly 15 or more year's,There was 2 of them originally,I don't know what happened to the other one.I took this photo over at Testo's a couple of week's ago,If you look closely you can see 2 Carp,They were spawning.

That reminds when I was looking for a fishing rod on e-bay a couple of week ago someone had a "Crap fishing rod" for sale, needless to say the person didn't have any bids on it.

I sent the person a message to point out the error.

Hi Folks,
This Thursday 12th May, I'm running a bat walk along the River Don in Boldon. All are welcome to this free public event and there is no need to book. Simply come along to the meeting place, the bridge on North Road (near Watson Terrace), Boldon Colliery at 8:45pm. No equipment is necessary, please dress for the weather and wear stout footwear.
If you have any queries, please contact Clare Rawcliffe, Countryside Officer on 0191 424 7423 by email at countryside@southtyneside.gov.uk , or on the night on 07747 475915.

If your interest in bats runs a little deeper, you may be interested in a course happening next Thurday 19th May in Jesmond Dene. The course is an introductory workshop on the National Bat Monitoring Project (NBMP)and the main part is a session on using heterodyne bat detectors and help identifying different species. There are still places left at the moment.
More information about the course and the NBMP can be found here:
http://www.bats.org.uk/pages/introductor..._workshops.html

Thanks
Clare

Hi Sid
I can't understand why they choose to cut the brambles and grass back in areas like this I always understood that it was good habitat for wildlife.

Maybe the council have too much money to spend or perhaps there is a genuine reason for why they have done it.
