Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcon spotted

Peregrine Falcon in Stinchcombe?

This photo was sent in today by Gareth Jones of a bird sitting on the roof of The Cottages, Wick Lane. He believes it is a Peregrine Falcon. I don’t think he lives here, (the Peregrine that is) so he must be on holiday. Unless someone else has spotted him. If so, please let me know.

Thank you Gareth for sending this in.

PS. Gareth has lived in Wick Lane for over 50 years. Almost a local !!

Lowsley-Williams v Lowsley-Williams

Or Father V Son

Filmed in and around Chavenage House this video shows an ebike ride along some of our local country lanes.

Despite being the father of an ex professional cyclist, George Lowsley-Williams, also known as Hank’s dad, hasn’t ridden a bike in over 20 years! Hank decided it was time for this to change, and invited his old man out on one of his training loops so they could ride together for the first time. Luckily for George, he had assistance in the form of an Orbea E-Bike so he could give Hank a run for his money on the hills!

“Absolutely excellent video in every way—great quality, brilliant editing, hilariously funny and in places quite touching. GCN at it’s best”. GH.

Stilton Cheese

Laugh or Cry?

Trade Deal feels the cheese squeeze

It has emerged that Liz Truss, the international trade secretary, backed away from signing a historic post-Brexit trade deal with Japan last week in support of a British cheese worth 0.007 per cent of total UK exports to the country.

Ms Truss, 45, had been hoping to announce the deal to protect £14.8 billion of UK exports to Japan after two days of negotiations with the foreign minister, Toshimitsu Motegi.

Mr Motegi flew back to Tokyo on Friday with no deal in place after Ms Truss demanded better terms for the UK’s stilton producers than the deal the UK has as part of its membership of the European Union, the Financial Times reported.

The talks will continue at an official level in an attempt to resolve the differences and have an agreement ratified before the transition period ends in December.
