    Saplings (??) going berserk in drought

    Not that unusual a form for a maturing GW around here, we’ve thousands of them on waste ground everywhere.

    Any clues what this is

    Looks more like Malus, with a lot of degradation of the sapwood. Fruitwood anyway, but not cherry.

    Tracking decline with Google street view...

    Residents were claiming a developer had caused the decline of a tree near their compound a few years back - they were really in for him. The historic imagery showed the decline over several years and, IIRC, the actual utility trenching works which was probably the real cause

    Welsh Wood !

    Maybe they buried it after the photo was taken? Joking aside, I wonder if there is any actual published guidance on building an artificial des res' for relocating Brock and his family?

    Bird nests

    Cat foods out for the stray cats, the foxes ignore it and stare through the patio doors until ‘their’ food gets put out.

    Bird nests

    Our foxes only seem to eat cooked chicken. They even turn their noses up at cat food.
