    That was real good Lee. I also like to have my camera to hand and often get some good shots from the car of things that you wouldn't always get to see again.
    They have just come in, apparently Jay suddenly thought of going to Pleasley Colliery instead so it will be interesting to see what they get. I could have gone with them but was busy in the garden today so am very tired. I will be off to bed shortly.

    A beekeeper had to be called after a swarm of 20,000 bees attached themselves to an Australian woman's washing.

    They made a bee line for some colourful pants and socks hanging on a washing line in Victoria, Australia.

    Beekeeper Brian Gardiner, who was called to clear the insects, said the woman had been terrified when she saw the bees attached to one of her socks.

    "She had gone out to bring the washing in and got the fright of her life," he said.

    "When she rang me and described where the swarm was, I had to grab my camera."

    Mr Gardiner said that bees swarm in the spring when their hives become overcrowded, forcing the queen bee to head out with some of her workers.

    The bees then cluster nearby while scouts head out to find suitable locations for a new hive

    If you think looking after two or three children is stressful enough, spare a thought for this over-worked parent.

    The Canada goose has been left in charge of 40 goslings on the Thames in Reading, with only one helper to lend a wing.

    Although so-called geese 'creches' - where the offspring of different parents get mixed up - are fairly common, experts say this is one of the largest and most understaffed they have seen.

    A duck flew over our garden yesterday. Never seen one here before, though the river is just at the bottom our road. All birds fascinate me, though I know nothing about any of them.

    On the way home I saw a hawk try to take a crow off one of the lamposts on the motorway. It didn't grab properly first time and the crow managed to take off so I think it saved itself, but it flew in the opposite direction so I don't know.

    This jackal was reminded of his place in nature's pecking order when he got a nasty nip on the nose after trying to snatch a hungry vulture's scrap of meat.

    The pair came to blows after setting their sights on the same tasty snack.

    Although the meat was closely guarded by the bird the jackal thought he'd try his luck - but he obviously hadn't bargained for a fight

    Before long the monkey nuts start to spill out and the cheeky chipmunk has to scamper off to store the hoard

    It's not what you'd usually expect to come across while settling down for breakfast, but this strange looking object is actually a seriously misshapen egg.
    Discovered in the Anhui province of China, the curved egg has taken on a similar shape to a banana.
    Misshapen eggs are common, but the varying shapes differ with each strain of bird.
    However they are most often produced by pullets coming into lay, or hens late in lay, often as a result of double ovulation

    I don't know how true this is but it was in the Daily mail

    A British family were thrilled today after their chicken set a new world record by laying fourteen eggs - in one day.
    The heavyweight hen - named Sarah - produced more than a dozen of her own eggs - in just over two hours
    Owner Debbie Armstrong, of Newquay, Cornwall, says the bird has only ever previously laid one each morning.

    But last week the plucky chicken produced 14 eggs in a day - which experts say is a world record.
    'It was over two hours that she laid fourteen eggs. She laid one when I was holding her.

    'I couldn't believe it. I researched it on line and found most chickens only lay one or two a day. So this is a lot more than that.
    'I'm just glad she hasn't died. I was getting increasingly worried about her as she had been acting broody lately.
    'But since she laid the 14 eggs, she seems a little more happy.

    Hey, has anyone ever heard of 'lashes' or a 'lash' before?! They were in a chicken magazine I got, they're apparently what hens sometimes lay, I guess, as a way to clean their egg-producing parts...or something like that!!

    • CommentAuthornanny north
    • CommentTimeJul 2nd, 2010 7:56pm (Jul 2nd 2010)
     
    A lash is the lining of the uterus (shell gland) and can be shed in response to an infection, it is the hens way to recover and they often feel a lot better after expelling it. They usually wont lay any more eggs after wards though. Amber produced a small one when she was egg bound. I don't know if she still lays but she is a happy friendly hen so I am not worried about it.

    A nasty tumble from the nest may have left Kevin the kestrel with a broken leg.
    But it was nothing that a bit of surgical ingenuity couldn't put to rights.
    With the help of a hypodermic needle for a pin, some slender strands of wire and a bit of dental cement, veterinary staff carefully fixed the tiny bird's fragile limb back into position.
    And if the bird of prey continues to make a speedy recovering he should be soaring over the British countryside by autumn.

    This sneaky mouse has shown an amazing talent for sneaking into a backyard bird feeder to gorge on nuts and oats.

    :mouse2:Is that the mouse that ate so much he couldn't get out?
    The picture I saw was of him trying to squash his way out of the tube but his bulging tummy wouldn't go through.

    I read the article and yes Ollie, it does say that. The owner of the feeder has freed him 3 times in the past. What a clever little mouse!

    Has anyone seen the new Ikea ad with all the cats? I saw a 'making of...' on You Tube which made me laugh. They took over a store at night and 2 of the cats had escaped before they even started filming, and one got down between the stands and they had to take them apart to get it out! Nice peaceful ad though.

    Yes, the beauty of digital photography. Not like the old days of reels and reels of film, costing a fortune to be developed, only to find out all of your efforts were rubbish!!!!

    That has happened to me many times Kate, but I can still remember the excitment of getting them developed and back through the post. Already I have more pictures of Aurelia than I ever had of my three boys. It was an expensive hobby back then. Nowadays you can just click away happily and delete any you don't want I love it.

    Held up in between two human fingers, this amazing two-headed African Spurred Tortoise is a rare sight to behold - and even evolutionist Charles Darwin would struggle to explain its unique deformity.
    Delicate, precious and tiny, this pair, who have been handed two names - Madga (left head) and Lenka - are only seven weeks' old
