It's been busy few days. On Thursday we went back to Horsham to see Chris Packam’s show ‘A Wild Life Exposed’. Excellent wildlife photography, complete with self critique. He is an amusing photographer who tells a great story as you would expect from the Spring and Autumn Watch shows on BBC TV.
On Saturday I spent the morning with Michael and Dave at Butterfly Conservation’s Rowland Wood, near Lewes. Once again we were gathering and burning trees which the tree cutters had felled. They were mostly pines which flared up in a very satisfying way. As we drove away the heavens opened, flooding parts of the A27. The day was complete when I relaxed in front of the England – France Rugby match where we managed to hold onto our lead. I remember seeing the same sides lay at Twickenham in the 60s and a French supporter released a cockerel at half time.

On Sunday I attended a dig on the Surrey border. It was mostly pasture. On the ploughed field I found just one button. On the rest I had 4 buckles, 2 buttons, a drawer handle, an old 5p coin, a plated silver coloured disc, an old penny and a musket ball.
