Morning Mick, is that good news?,I got a letter last year from Nottingham city council,it appears I owe 51 pounds for not completeing payment of 'POLL TAX' 92-93.They had a different name for it in the letter,didn't recognize name so called over to Nottingham.When the guy explained the letter,I was speechless.

From the introduction of the 'POLL TAX',I became very active in the anti 'POLL TAX' league.I wrote across the bill in two inch letters with a'day glow'green marker,'bullocks,and mailed to it the appropriate department.

As an ex cop,do you think they will swear out a warrent for me,or class me as a terrorist and put me on 'the no fly list'.Planning on coming over later in the year.

They would go to that expence after this time period to chase an ex Pat for fifty one quid!

A surprise (not)!

Incidentally re tax code, it means I will pay an extra 20% of a further £2500

of my local government pension. Bastards!

I did ring the 0845 number and after hanging on for 15 minutes got the

Regular phone number igot from

When I immediately got through I was asked if I was ringing from a broad

When I said no, I was told he would deal with my enquiry on this occassion,

but they were planning to hang up on people in the UK using the access number

for calls from outside the UK.

The 0845 number is a number that is a premium rate for anyone using a mobile!

Hey mick, I was joking about the warrent and the arrest,would I realy get busted coming over to England?.

Do you want me to send you our realtors E mail address,maybe you can go online and take a look at houses around this area,e.g. 3 bed 2 bath 1650sq ft living space,double garage,built in 2003,$73,000,selling 3 years ago for around 180,000+,and thats not joking.

I looked on a estate agents site in Beeston,120,000 pounds for an end terrace house, $200,000! is that correct?.

(For those who have never had them before, buy some - asda £1summat, lavleh!) iv been going slightly mad being stuck in the house, but its too cold & slippy to risk pushing a pushchair about... & today my little sweetpea is one hell of a mardy baby!! Shes teething, 3 back teeth, ouch! shes 'cutting on the cross' so shes been crying for most of the day.. fun! Managed to get her to have her morning nap... this afternoon, then a sale guy BANGED not nocked, BANGED on the door & woke her up, iv had a moaning baby ever since...

Plans for tonight - hopefully get abit more of babies bedroom done!

..Hope your all well & having a good day!

As forecast the weather today was sunny with no wind to speak of, temperature around 7 or 8c. The wife has a dental appointment at 3pm and decides to go to the sports centre for a couple of hours beforehand.

With no wind, the sea and the lochs are flat calm and good for birding, with Europe frozen there are lots of watefowl, waders and other migrants around. I set off North to Laxfirth, Red Necked Grebe and a couple of Slavonian Grebes on the sea with a couple of dozen Red Breasted Mergansers and a few Goldeneye and Long Tailed Ducks.

Next to Loch of Benston, loads of Wigeon and Teal,(including one Green Winged Teal all the way from N. America). Plenty of Grey Lag Geese, Curlews and Whooper Swans, Mallards, Tufted Ducks. Then I turn South, 2 Goosanders on Strand Loch and Pink Footed Goose at Tingwall. 20 miles further on and Shelduck, Purple Sandpiper,Turnstone and Redshank at Boddam. 5 miles further south to Virkie, 10 Bar tailed Godwits, Grey Plover, Ringed Plovers and loads of Lapwings also European White Fronted Goose nearby.

West Voe of Sumburgh for Black Guillemot, Shag, and Great Northern Diver. I then drive up to the Lighthouse on Sumburgh Head, there are hundreds of Guillemots on the sea, the first sign of Spring, they will nest on the cliffs here. I then turn for home calling at Scatness, here there is a Scaup and an Iceland Gull and more Grey Lags, Wigeon and Lapwings..

Next to Quendale loads more Lapwings Teal and Wigeon with 2 Coot and several Moorhens, them to Loch of Spiggie, Mute Swans, Cormorant and Little Grebe another Iceland Gull, and 2 Red Throated Divers.

A very nice day, four hours and 1 hundred miles on empty roads. Forecast tomorrow, bright to start with then rain and wind reaching gale force later on. I'll try and get out early before the rain, probably go to the Westside.

Hi, Beefsteak, over 50% of the Red Necked Phaleropes that nest in the UK nest here, approx 20 -25 pairs., Golden Plovers also nest here (over 1% of UK population), and are a common winter visitor, I saw a flock of 60 two weeks ago. Snow Buntings winter here I saw a flock of 25 last month.

Regarding twitchers Mick, this species are a common migrant at all times of year, but mostly in the late sring and late autumn, the last occurence was last December when more than a hundred turned up. There arrival coincided with the appearance an adult male Siberian Rubythroat.

It's a nice day again, so I'm off to the Sumburgh area. The wind is getting up, but no gales until tonight hopefully.

Something recently landed at Attenborough, and as I went past on the train they could be seen crowded round a bit of a bridge on the reserve. With their cameras big lenses and tripods.

OLDACE, I love your bird and weather reporting.

A few days ago, a flock of what I believed were starlings landed on an apple tree of mine in the back garden; I'd left a load of gorgeous red apples on this tree thinking that they could be of use to Nature rather than me. Would the birds have been starlings because the bottom part of their breasts were fluffy white feathers?
