The Little Critters

Vegetarians step away from the blog! Just help land 9 boxes of these little critters from a trawler that arrived at MacDuff Harbour about an hour ago. Until I started this job (harbour night-watchman), I had no idea it was possible to catch prawns this size in the waters off the coast of Scotland.

The Oak Processionary Moth

We’ve spotted a number of these ‘nests’ made by the Oak Processionary Moths in nearby oak trees here in the Netherlands. We’ve never seen them ever before. That’s global warming for you Mr Trump!!!

But, before blaming Mr Trump too much, it looks like we British might be responsible for introducing this particular (and toxic) pest into Europe. More information here.
