What ever happens mate, I hope it all works out for you.
Cheers Spider.

I cannot wait to get back over to the tranquillity of the Scillies and the great expectations (apt words at the moment)of what might be around the corner or in the next field.

That is an absolutely stupid short sighted decision by the idiots in charge, yet another blow for wildlife in this country. London has very few decent wildlife sites so they need to keep the people who look after them.

I wish all the best where ever you end up, looking at the amount of wildlife you helped attract to central London you'll be a great asset to where ever takes you on.
