The 18th July Random Photos in Passing

Diary of Natural Environment In and Around Wimpole

I decided to have a bath before taking the dogs out for their daily walk, went into the bathroom and I was beaten to it – there in the bath was what seemed an enormous Roesels Bush Cricket. It must have been the white colour of the bath that gave it the appearance of being bigger than an African Locust. It was duly removed into the garden and then photographed.

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
