Autumnwatch Unsprung round

We had lots of fantastic questions, pictures and videos from you canada goose shop uk review all last week and one of our favourites was from Ian W who wanted to know why these geese were flying upside down!

As Chris said, when they turn their bodies upside down they become very unaerodynamic allowing canada goose outlet italy them to drop quickly from the sky.

We’re on the hunt for the UK’s biggest house spider. If you think you’ve got it then post your spider picture here canada goose outlet in usa with a coin or ruler for scale. Here is our graph of your spiders so far.

The UK’s Biggest Spider Canada Goose Parka Graph so far.

Thomas (aged 6) wanted to know what the loudest bird call is. It’s thought that the farthest carrying bird call in the UK comes from the bittern. A bittern’s booming call can be heard up to three miles away. (Watch a clip of a bittern booming from the BBC’s archives here.) Where most birds use their voicebox syrinx to make their call the bittern actually makes its sound by expelling air through its oesophagus.

After a lifetime of petrified terrification (thanks to Dr Who in the 70’s and 80’s !!), I’m slowly coming to terms with these little critters and only rarely need to scream to my wife to get one out of the bath (I’m nearly 60 now and it’s probably about time I grew out of it fear of spiders, not baths that is) but as much as I can tolerate and even save them myself now (especially those chubby short legged garden ones which I really quite like), the ones that still freak me are those that INSIST on dangling in doorways when previously there was no sign of them!!!!!!! And invariably they have long legs and when you try to move them out of the canada goose factory outlet toronto location way, they shoot sideways, or downwards at such a speed you’d think they’d just vanished. How and why do they do this I assume hanging around in doorways is some form of predatory activity (for spiders that canada goose outlet is) but if that makes them so vulnerable, and exposed, surely their cover must be blown??

Please help me to go to the toilet at night without waving to wave a bean cane in front of me!!

Thanks Guys.
