Hi Pete. How are you?, hope all is well and you are getting those bags packed for that holiday.
First ref the Bullfinches which are for sure a most beautiful bird. As I said I have only seen one in the last 26 years here but do you know at my last address we saw many. How so and why?,we had just the one purple leaved Prunus Pissardi Nigra planted in the middle of the plot and every year without fail just as it was/had set its flower buds for the new year they would arrive in droves and devour the lot. Only the flower buds, the leaf buds were fine and all year we had this nice dark purple foliaged tree to please us but precious few flowers. Ah the fickleness of nature!,so very complex over all and whilst we do indeed know so much about it all theres still so much we have to and should learn I think.
A pet theory of my ignorant self is that all of the many varied creatures be they big or small all integrate and work together to keep the Planet going and surviving,all interdependent. Interfere if you dare!,it can only end up finally, some way or other I think with a very negative result for all of us. Nuff said, give it a bit of thought.
Ref the Rangers. Its good reading about it all and for sure they are very self sufficient, I read one where they were doing their own welding repairs to sleds etc. Did you say they receive Services pay, but are they counted as Army?.
