Admin reply: Hi Stewart
Lab rats may well be scientifically trained, but I'm also house-trained. Beat that rats!

Hulme
Just to add that we appreciate your comments and would ask that anyone reading this who intends to explore this great country of ours takes note of them.

Name: Hulme
From: West Country
I have been involved in conservation for the last 30 years as a volunteer. I am greatly impressed with your photography of wildlife, if not a little unhappy at your handling of wildlife and disturbing of habit in order to get a better view of them (your account of removing corrugated iron on Ashdown Forest in order to photograph sloworms). I fully appreciate that your website is amature but if you are not trained or experienced in handling or assisting wild animals, then PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, leave them alone regardless of what fate YOU may think will befall them.

Admin reply: I can assure you Hulme that we do not handle any animals at all and we wouldn't dream of disturbing any form of habitat. If the only example you have of us doing so in the last three years is the slow worm, then can I point out that no habitat was upset and the slow worm was completely untouched, so to be thought of as rampaging eco-bulldozers is very upsetting. I am scientifically trained and understand the issues you are raising and so we do not go around willy-nilly upsetting the environment just to get pictures. Lifting up a sheet of corrugated iron that had been left there by a human does not constitute as environmental damage! Perhaps we could have walked past without lifting it up, but we did, and there was the slow worm, an animal that neither of us had seen since we were kids. The only other animal we have picked up was a bank vole, an animal who's main role on this Earth is to be ripped to pieces and eaten by predators such as birds of prey. Our picking it up from the middle of a well trodden path and moving it to one side is miniscule in comparison. I hope this allays your fears that we are ignorant people who stomp around the countryside upsetting everything for our own pleasure. We are not, and we take great pains to leave nothing behind but the shallow footprints of our well-worn hiking boots.
Glad you enjoy our pictures and my waffling and we hope that you’ll continue to keep an eye on us.
All the best
Andy & Gill

Sorry Paul, don't know what a "poch" is. There are more kids that should be on leashes than dogs and look where their nappies go - good old landfill,or down the toilet!

Admin reply: Pooch.

Hi Charlie.

Ever considered that you/we are all part of "the baying masses"?

Admin reply: I may growl a little bit Eliza, but I don't bay or bite!
