"I'm also in Lower Clapton & happy to bear you in mind. I have to say that some of my offerings may be roots of rather invasive perennials like giant dead nettle and hybrid woundwort. Message me with your contact details if you're…"
"Hi Lorraine. Bumblebee workers from the same nest do vary a lot in size, e.g. bombus terrestris (buff-tailed) workers vary x8 in mass. There is apparently a lot of debate about about adaptive reasons for this and I've just been reading a…"
"Little egret on the old Lea by the overflow outlet, 26 May (2013). Anyone seen one earlier this year? It then walked some distance inside the culvert so that it was barely visible.
Pair of Egyptian geese, same place, round about 20 May."

"Cllr McShane's rhetorical reference to the wettest summer for 100 years is misleading as it is not true for London. According to the Met Office data for Heathrow there was more rain in summer 1999 than 2012. In fact it was almost as…"

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.
