For the record Ö Harding's Farm has not been a farm, in the proper sense of the word,
for the past 25 years Ö. the attempts to develop the site are too numerous to catalogue!

Clipper - DECIDED means that the Council has reached a decision on an application. If you actually click on the application you will see the decision was to refuse the application

Any one know what the term 'Decision' means on the RBWM Planning Portal ?

I see Harding's Farm has had a 'Decision' for development of houses.

IF this term 'Decision' means an Approval  - then another sad loss for the Cookham's   Embarrassed 

Cannon Court Farm / Woodlands Farm and now Hardings Farm?? - What are these Planners and Cllrs doing to the area  Roll Eyes

I actually saw one of these in Hants many years ago which had flown over the 'pond' for a visit. There have in fact been about 38 other records of it in UK since. So you just never know what will turn up on the feeder. And what better topic for taking photos than on your bird feeder for entries in the Wild about Cookham natural history photographic competition currently open. for details.

This photo has been sent to

This is a photo of a Brighteyed Juncko or Jinko that I took this morning. It is of the finch family, and is a seed eater, but will eat small crumbs that the gulls leave behind. Why I sent it to you is to stir people to take an interest in village life, and to take photos when the local birds come to the bird table.

Just seen this:
A witness saw a man smash the window to a bike store and steal 2 bikes.  They were put into a van, which then drove off.  An area search was carried out by the police, but no-one was traced.  1.  A very valuable, red, Argon Krypton, ladies, racing bike.  2.  A very valuable yellow, Whyte Wessex 1, manís racing bike.

Hi Birdman,

I think Australia is a rather different situation, Australian population 24.5 million, UK population 66.5 million. Population density Australia 3.14 per square kilometre, UK density 272 or England 427 per sq. km. I realise that the density stats are a bit misleading as the centre of Australia is basically a great big desert where few people live but the ratio of the amount of police to population seems similar.

Whilst they talk about neighbourhood watch, a couple of years back one of my neighbours witnessed the postman being harassed by 2 men whilst he was delivering mail to the house next door. The 2 men then took the mail from the postman and as a result the mail recipient's bank account was emptied. My quick thinking neighbour took photos of the men and their vehicle, he then informed the police but was subsequently never contacted by them. I can only assume that they saw it as an insurance job and had more important issues to deal with, no wonder our insurance premiums are so high. It also hardly encourages a neighbourhood watch.

Is it the cycle shop or the one next door? It was fine on Monday, I'm sure. But there had been a smashed shop window nearby.
