Incredible footage from an helicopter of the mountain rescue of the basal detachment in Marmolada. Water lubrication at the base (or interstrata) and increased pressure in water-filled crevasses are probably the main causes for this catastrophic event

For all my Scottish Twitter pals: some rather splendid thistles at the viewpoint in #Lubin this afternoon 馃樅 #Zachodniopomorskie

Amazing scenes at Far Ings Nature Reserve today. This young bittern was found in the meadow by our warden. It seemed to be inexperienced at flying & grounded by the wind. After a bit of check over it was taken to the edge of the reedbed where it happily disappeared into the reeds

It's #SwiftAwarenessWeek! #Swifts the aviators of our skies, miracles of nature & a joy to observe, scream & scythe through our summer skies. They are losing their homes in niches, nooks & crannies of our roofs, as 1 by 1 we seal up holes & cut them adrift. Can you help?

Wow - looks like a large part of a glacier in the Dolomites has broken off and gone crashing down into the valley. Am reading in the news there are fatalities 馃樋
The footage of the large ice avalanche in Marmolada today in close proximity. We don't know the author, we will write it in the comments as soon as we will know it. Indeed an impressive sequence

This is a small-leaved lime, and whenever I come across one at this time of year, I鈥檓 always astounded by quite how many bees it attracts - you can really hear it humming! 馃樄 (although you can also hear the swallows)

One of my favourite viewpoints in #Zachodniopomorskie, at #Lubin, a medieval stronghold with a few remaining ruins. From here you can see all the way to #艢winouj艣cie across the #SzczecinLagoon. 1/

The view鈥檚 made all the more pleasant by this delightful little tea room complete with deckchairs out on the lawn, where one can relax and contemplate one鈥檚 surroundings as the cormorants fly past and the swallows and martins twitter and warble as they dart around your head

There鈥檚 a reason why I tend to come to the Polish seaside in the off-season but I can鈥檛 quite remember what it is鈥︷煒

Checked all Swift boxes today. Can't believe it but I have 12 nests. 2 still on eggs, 22 live chicks having amazingly only lost 2 to the bee swarm. Result! Everyone should try to get these birds nesting on their houses. It takes a bit of effort but it is really worth it.

Today is #NationalMeadowsDay! The loss of our uplifting hay meadow habitats in the UK makes my heart hurt, so I want to share with you the secret for turning your lawn into a mini wildflower meadow for *free* 馃憡 (1/7)

For #NationalMeadowsDay here's Clattinger Farm a beautiful place in the care of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. Glad that @Love_plants are doing so much to protect and restore meadows.

Last year we created a meadow area in the village (with the @WKWT ), it's amazing to see the variety of wildflowers! Pictured: pyramidal orchid (馃槷), cornflower, corncockle and of course yellow rattle. This would otherwise be an area of close cropped grass. #NationalMeadowsDay

I want to tell you a story about something fascinating that has happened in Japan. An academic named Kohei Saito wrote a book about democratic "degrowth communism". Everyone said it would be a flop, because degrowth "is a terrible word", and communism "is a terrible word too."

A lot of people seem to be really struggling to grasp exactly what the Tories have become. It's no mystery to me- I've seen them up close, at work and play, and I think you guys need to understand what we're dealing with. A thread 馃憞
