    Hornet? Nr Coventry uk

    Hi John, thanks for the confirmation. I did have a good look around the outside of my house, used my binos to scan for any activity around the roof and eaves but fortunately no sign. I did find one on my garden path a few days ago, so there must be a nest somewhere near. Dave

    Night calling bird

    Thanks for the comments folks. Hi Delia, the current file says it's mp4, so I may see if I can convert it to mp3 and see if it works. I tried to attach it by clicking on 'Attach files' (as you say, the one with a paperclip) and it seems to load but then I get a message "the uploaded file was...
