Nature's wierdest ...

Topically, Chris Packham showed on BBC a row of Spindle Trees and a red Honda car, in Rotterdam, cocooned by the silken web of these moths. Moral: don't park your car under Bird Cherry or Spindle Trees in May/June or you may find it 'carcooned'. Sorry about the pun.

Give us another one do ...

Not mine - you will have to view Chris Packham's 'Nature's Weirdest ... ' on BBC1 or BBC iplayer for more. Regards

Thanks, I should have

Thanks, I should have realised it was one of Mr Packham's, he is fond
of the odd pun or two. I've recorded the programme, just not had time
to watch it yet.

Spot the pun!

If you are into puns then programme 2 contains a pun about the deaths of 5000 blackbirds. Regards
