We are feeding the garden birds lots of goodies. Do you feed the birds in your garden anything special in this weather and what sort of feeders and how many do you have in the garden at the moment. Also water is most important too!

Admin reply: Hi Debbie
We put out a mixture of types of seeds in a tall feeder outside our front room window. We also use the high energy sunflower hearts too. That alone keeps our local sparrows, greenfinches and chaffinches going. Also pigeon corn on a bird table along with table scraps and water in a bowl that's replaced when it's frozen.
If we all do a little bit to help then that will help them make it through this terrible weather. Thanks for doing your bit too and we hope you enjoy our site.

Cool website, how long will it take your OL to qualify for her bike licence. Thinking of paying for my OL to have a Hog but she needs a licence first and of course some experience - how much is it all costing and for how many lessons or is it a quickie course?

Cheers all and a Happy New Year

Admin reply: ART Motorcycle Training do a course that will let you get your CBT and theory test for about £130 in one day. That is using one of their bikes.
They can then get you your direct access licence to a larger bike (if you're over 21) in training sessions over 3-7 days.
Gill will hopefully be finishing her training next year, but good luck to your other half in the meantime. Riding bikes is one of life's true pleasures that everyone should try. The important thing is to get some good training from professionals and experienced friends, keep the speed down and your eyes open, keep good distance between you and other road users, and most of all - relax and enjoy it. That way you have a far better chance of staying upright.

Don't want to split hairs here, but you have just contradicted what you say in the first sentence of your opening paragraph for this walk, which didn't happen. The most experienced of us can get "caught out" believe me I know, so don't under-estimate the weather nor the warnings and don't think that because you live in the South East and "know the area well" nothing can harm you.

Admin reply: This is an important point for people new to hiking to learn. The weather can be very unpredictable and can certainly be dangerous if it is underestimated or not prepared for. Over the years I've been confronted by virtually all that the British weather can come up with and am very experienced, so I would never put myself or my wife in any unnecessary danger. The important thing is to know when to call things a day, and in this instance our walk was called off due more to irritation than any real danger. The flooding down here would never be like those floods in the north where the geography is vastly different to our lazy West Sussex floodplains.

In view of the recent weather in the North West, don't you think you were a little bit irresponsible on your recent walk to Pullbrough? Supposing you had been cut off halfway through this walk, the Met Office don't give out warnings for nothing! It was obviously a waste of train fare and time, but could also have resulted in emergency services being called out.

Admin reply: No I don't. We know the area well and we took no risk whatsoever. In fact the brooks are still not flooded, I had a look at them today.
Besides, we live in the South East and there were no flood warnings. The flood plain floods all of the time (it's supposed to, it's a floodplain) but it only gets to about knee deep. The worst that could have happened was wet socks and we had them already!

See you give a lot of advice to k9 owners, what pets do you have, what is their environmental impact and what do you do to limit the same?

Admin reply: We don't have any pets. We're satisfied enough with seeing animals in the wild. We only comment on dogs at all because we so often see them being allowed to run about in nature reserves despite the signs telling the owners to keep them on a lead.

Time for some voluntary work on the footpaths in Sussex then by looks of things, now that the theory is over!
