balancing act

GLORIOUS May is a great time to be in the countryside, especially if the weathermen’s prediction about the Spanish plume is correct. It’s right that it’s shared with as many people as possible: Nature promotes wellbeing, exposure to it involves exercise, which is good for health, and the money from visiting helps the rural economy. There’s a lot to like. This is recognised by national figures such as Bill Bryson and Caroline Quentin, who have written to Defra Secretary Michael Gove to suggest that every child should, at some point in their school career, visit a national park. This aim seems doubly important when the Ordnance Survey is having to revise the time it allocates to walks, seemingly because we’re not as energetic or as purposeful as previous generations. It could also…

Ratty in deep water WITH their chestnut-brown fur and little black eyes (or black fur, north of the border), water voles are as endearing now as when gentlemanly boater Ratty first brought them fame in The Wind in the Willows more than 100 years ago. However, as the UK’s fastest declining mammal, they need help. For the past four years, the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) has carried out a survey and is looking for volunteers to take part in this year’s National Water Vole Monitoring Programme. Loss and damage to their habitats in streams, rivers and other fresh waterways are cited as reasons for the decline, together with intensive agriculture and water pollution, not to mention the predatory American mink, which is blamed for a dramatic 90% crash in water-vole…

WASPS are in bad repute not only owing to the damage which they cause to our fruit, but also because they kill hive bees, because of their stinging propensities, and because they do not store up honey after the manner of the honey-bee. We are always quick to see the bad in animals and often very slow to realise their good points, and especially is this so in the case of the wasp. Like myself, many may be prejudiced because of the result of previous encounters. Their harmfulness is very obvious, but few are in a position to say that when present in relatively small numbers the damage done by them is not more than counterbalanced by the less obvious good which they confer by the destruction of flies, caterpillars,…
